My own experience is that all men from New Orleans seem to think they can make the best gumbo. My list certainly includes my father-in-law, brother-in-law, as well as hubby’s uncles, cousins, etc., and of course Hubby himself–and he’s the worst one of them all! So during our Christmas dinner while my father-in-law, brother-in-law and hubby were discussing the correct way to make a roux and with all three wanting to make the turkey gumbo, guess who won—father-in-law!
FYI, after dinner while sitting in my in-laws family room, I discovered a new southern magazine --Garden & Gun. In the December/January issue is a recipe for Duck & Oyster Gumbo—looks like we may be having duck here soon!
