Gumbo z'Herbes

Gumbo z'Herbes over rice with some gumbo filé 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.

What I try to do is always keep an emergency piece of tasso in the freezer just for such cravings. Then again, I was just home in April and May, and the tasso we bought is gone already. Never mind ...

I was really nervous the first time I made this for non-Louisianian dinner guests. I was sweating bullets worrying that they'd take a spoonful to be polite and then cover the bowl with their napkins. Figuring I'd have enough leftovers for weeks, I was amazed when they all went back for seconds and thirds. It's not just for greens-lovers!

Elisabeth Heinicke:

Hi - thanks for the Russo's plugs! I checked back on your original Russo entry though, and found that the link you posted still points to the old website. Any chande you could change it to

Much appreciated -
