When I last visited the world of gumbo, our friend Chuck suggested taking a stab at Gumbo z'Herbes with any leftover tasso we may have. Well, I woulda, right then, right there, 'cept it was the middle of January, and I'm in New England — neither the right time or place to be making something calling for a dozen or so variety of fresh greens, even if I did have some lovely tasso looking for a pot to stew in back then. So now that it's summer and obtaining fresh quality greens takes little effort (can't help but make another plug for Russo's in Watertown. Hurray for Russo's!) I was determined to follow Chuck's recommendation. There was only one problem — I didn't have any left over tasso. So I made Chuck's Gumbo z'Herbes pretty much as written. It was awesome. But he's right, it'd probably have been even awesomer with some tasso. Next time. Ah, yes. Next time.
