 Cajun Cuisine: The Richness of Gumbo
Perhaps nothing is more reknown as a staple of Cajun cuisine than gumbo, a spicy, hearty stew or soup whose name literally means "okra." Called one of the greatest contributions from Cajun kitchens to American cuisine, it came to Louisiana with the first French settlers, who loved bouillabaisse, a highly seasoned French stew.
After a century mixing with Spanish, African, and native cuisine in the region, the stew was no longer recognizable as its French precursor and was instead something completely new: gumbo.
Contrary to popular belief, it is frowned upon for a chef to make Cajun cooking overly hot or peppery - these are left to the diners themselves if they wish to spice up their dish with sauces like Tabasco.
