I recently went on a trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. I attended a demonstration class at the New Orleans School of Cooking where our instructor, Ms. Harriet, showed us how to make gumbo, chicken creole, and pralines. They also served us a local beer called Abita. The recipes for the food were given to us, placed on our tables. I thought the gumbo was super delicious so bought some spices and made a couple batches when I got home.
Here's the link to the school where you can book a class or order their spice mixes and hot sauces. I liked the green hot sauce the best. https://neworleansschoolofcooking.com/
Here's the original recipe below. Sorry it's small and crooked. To get the full experience and a nice (straight) copy of the recipe, you'll have to go to NOLA and attend a cooking class yourself. 😄
