Chicken Gumbo Recipe

Chicken Gumbo Recipe
The classic creole dish featuring the obligatory holy trinity of peppers, onions, and celery. The holy trinity is the Cajun version of mirepoix. Gumbo is fantastic in that it is both light and flavorful at the same time. Be careful with the rice. As a little can go a long way. If you put in too much rice, you will end up with a rice dish (not a soup) that tastes like gumbo. I have learned this from experience. Tasting Guidelines: Taste is savory, a little spicy, and aromatic. Weight is light. Texture is soft. Good for low to moderate side effects. Best categorized as Cajun/Creole.

An American classic. If there is somebody in the United States that has never heard of chicken noodle soup, they must live under the world’s largest rock.

Tasting Guidelines: Taste is savory and aromatic. Weight is light but can be balanced with sugar and red wine vinegar. Texture is soupy.
