[quote]Prejeans gumbo can't not compare to Charlie G's.[/quote]Well, I don't know. I haven't had the Prejean's pheasant gumbo in at least 15 years, but at that time it was and still is the best I ever had. Maybe it has changed for the worse over the years. And I really can't compare since I never ha...

re: Charlie G’s smoked duck and andouille gumbo - Stadium Rat
KB Is pretty flavorless. One time America's Test Kitchen reviewed it as an artificial fond. Of course it failed miserably because that's not what it is - it's food coloring. On the other hand I do agree that the sight of a dish enhances the experience. In the case of the Prejean's gumbo, it wa...

re: Your Favorite CookBook? - Stadium Rat
I have so many cookbooks it's hard to name a favorite. I collected about 1,000, most of them through my garage sale addiction. I rarely follow a recipe exactly, but I like to have these for reference. Some of the ones I value most are "fusion" cookbooks, like the [b]New Orleans Italian Cookbook[...

re: Need Gumbo Advice - Stadium Rat
Do what GG said. You have to put it into smaller containers so every bit of it will chill down. If you put it in warm in a big pot, the middle of the pot will be in the danger zone for hours. If you think about your Tupperware or other storage containers, most are no thicker than about 4 inches....

re: Your Favorite CookBook? - Stadium Rat
[quote]There is an e-recipe book compiled by this guy who calls himself "Rat". I don't think that is his real name. Anyhow, it is a compendium of recipes from a plethora of self proclaimed experts in Cooking Good Grub. All of them but one seem to have their act together and I really like it. [/quo...
