Mmmnnnn...Louisiana gumbo!

The New Orleans writer and poet Sheryl St.Germain is spending her sabbatical in my winter cottage. The other night we were all treated to a traditional gumbo, complete with shrimp, chicken, spicy sausage, and lobster claws. Wow- was it delicious! Sheryl gave me two of her books- The Making of an Unruly Woman and Let It Be a Dark Roux. More rich and spicy nourishment.

I spent six years in New Orleans as a kid, but I was too young to appreciate the city and its cuisine. My 40th (!) class reunion is coming up in April this year. Time for a return visit to the Crescent City, and some more gumbo...

If you have a chance to go to Dominique's in the French Quarter, don't miss it! It's the best restaurant I've ever been to.
