FOUND the GUMBO and JAMBALAYA Recipe from New Orleans School of Cooking

While letting my two closed pelvic bone fractures heal, I did scan a mega load of things and among them also surfaced the recipe of the GUMBO and the JAMBALAYA that we made at the New Orleans School of Cooking.
Had searched for it when I wrote about New Orleans (link below post...).
So I would like to share them with you!
LOVED doing this and we enjoyed eating some good authentic Chicken & Andouille Gumbo for lunch after cooking it!

Hope you enjoyed it and thanks for your visit!

  1. I will try your posted recipes Mariette! They look delicious. I love using spices and the Holy Trinity: onion, celery and bell peppers (usually red, but sometimes green). I also like to dice up a plum tomato to add to vegetables. Makes a tasty sauce.

    1. Dearest Debbie,
      This Cajun food is delicious and one never tires of it.
      The bell peppers I love to buy at Costco, different colors and that looks so nice.
      Sending you hugs,
      Mariette

  2. When we visited Nova Scotia several years ago, I was ashamed to learn about the forced expulsion of the French Arcadians living there by our country . They left in little boats, which were totally unsuitable for the long journeys that they were making, and many perished at sea.
    It must have been interesting and fun being taught how to make authentic Gumbo and Jambalaya Recipes at the New Orleans School of Cooking.

    1. Dearest Rosemary,
      All throughout history we can feel ashamed of such incidents where people got forced out or displaced. Very sad and indeed those boats were not sea worthy at all and it is quite a journey.
      The New Orleans School of Cooking was a great experience!
      Hugs,

    1. Dearest Janey,
      So do we and we used to have a local restaurant where we could eat it on Thursdays as he did dinners, above the usual lunches. But he developed MS and had to quit doing this... So sad to see him now in a wheel chair.

  8. I love Gumbo and Jambalaya. I use okra instead of file to thicken the Gumbo. Meat pies Louisiana style are so good too. How neat to be able to make these recipes at the Louisiana School of Cooking. I am catching up on your posts. I am hoping my sister and I will be able to take a trip to Louisiana next year to do some genealogy research. My Grandfather lived in Natchitoches a while when he was young. His Aunt, Eulalie Cloutier and Uncle Albert Voiers lived there and are buried in a Catholic cemetery.

    1. Dearest Betsy,
      That is a very clever idea and I do love okra and use it as often as I can.
      Indeed hoping that you and your sister can take a trip to Louisiana for exploring your French roots as both names really sound French. Interesting to find the grave side and document it.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  11. Hello Mariette, I learned to like gumbo on a trip to New Orleans. Later, I learned to make it myself, and it has become a specialty. I looked at many source recipes but ended by evolving my own. For one thing, most recipes do not include carrots, but I find that they are a wonderful addition. Sometimes I make chicken gumbo, but quite often I make a vegetarian version that is also quite satisfying.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Good for you to make your own vegetarian version and that no doubt is the most healthy one too!
      We both loved it first time in New Orleans in the 80s and we did have a local restaurant whose Chef made the best. He's in a wheelchair now with MS, sadly he had to quit doing what he was so passionate about...
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  12. I have been tp New Orleans many many many times and always enjoyed the food there whichever restaurant we went to. I miss being there. It has been since 9/11. (That's just a time frame...)

    1. Dearest Katie Isabella,
      That has been quite a while for you for not having had the pleasure of being immersed into Cajon food!
      We both do love it very much and did so on our last trip in February.
