When it is cold my thoughts run to gumbo. It is one of those foods that is fun to make as it is satisfying to make as it is to eat.
My “go-to” gumbo recipe is from Chef John Besh. The good folks at Garden and Gun posted a great story, The Besh Gumbo Ever. It is not only a fun story to read, it also has Chef Besh’s wonderful recipe!
For me the secret to great gumbo is the roux. In the G & G article you will learn one of Besh’s secrets…the 3 beer roux. Works for me!
