Gumbo is the Creole mainstay of New Orleans cuisine. It is a thick, stew like dish that can have any of many ingredients such as okra, tomatoes, and onions. A gumbo can have various mixtures of different types of meats or shellfish such as chicken, sausage, ham, shrimp, crab or oysters. The one ingredient that all gumbos begin with is the unmistakable dark roux. Gumbo file is used to thicken this essential dark roux and gives it the distinctive flavor.
