Shrimp-Andouille Gumbo - Get Your Gumbo On!

After Cooking the Issue, we've had more time to become familiar with the Fine Cooking web site, currently featuring a short video on how to make authentic gumbo. We were inspired and read a few different recipies, including Poppy Tooker's Seafood Gumbo and Chicken-Andouille File Gumbo, from FC's January 2008 issue #90, Get Your Gumbo On.

John took the lead chef role and I was happy to be his sous chef for the day. He combined a few different methods and ingredients, using shrimp, andouille sausage and okra in our gumbo. John's roux was beautiful and the final dish turned out delicious.
