Feb. 13- Seafood Gumbo A/TX


First you make a roux…..” 

A little magic, a little science, a little art, Gumbo is a Creole cook’s expression of affection, a one pot love affair for friends and family, alike. 

There are as many types of gumbo as there are Thibodeaux in Louisiana, and the most special of them all features the finest sustainable seafood the Gulf has to offer. Join market chef and food writer Maggie Perkins, of Notes from Maggie’s Farm, as she breaks down the basic bones of this iconic dish, Creole Seafood Gumbo beginning with the mighty and indispensable ROUX.

You’ll be as entertained as you are enlightened by hints, tips, family secrets, and raucous stories about life in Bayou Country while learning to prepare and afterward feasting on Seafood Gumbo with rice, traditional garlic bread, classic Sensation Salad, and a sweet little bit of lagniappe to finish. 

Come join us, cher, it’s going to be a BIG TIME. C’est si bon!

About Maggie Perkins: When food writer, former farmer, and market chef Maggie Perkins isn't preparing seasonal dishes on the fly at local farmers markets, you might find her at a backwoods barbecue joint in Mississippi, comparing chargrilled oysters in the Big Easy, or trading food folklore with a fishmonger on the coast. Her true north is in her home kitchen, puttering about, spinning vintage vinyl, perfecting her creole cooking techniques, and developing recipes she shares in print, and on her blog, Notes from Maggie's Farm.
