Gumbo is a dish with a deep cultural history — beginning as a West African stew brought to Louisiana along with the slave trade, and evolving with the French Acadians that settled in Cajun Country. It’s many iterations have included okra, ground sassafras leaves, roux, seafood, and a wide variety of cured pork. Popularized by Paul Prudhomme, Gumbo Ya Ya is a chicken-and-sausage dish named for the Cajun phrase for when everyone talks at once. In that spirit, unmute yourself and join Katharine Wright as she teaches you how to make your own Gumbo Ya Ya with homemade Cajun spice blend, long-cooked roux, andouille sausage, and hot sauce, along with piping-hot cheesy garlic bread and fluffy rice.
This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Class is meant to be as interactive as it would be at our table, with the instructor teaching you how to prepare each recipe.
