Warm your Toes with Gumbo


Cold weather makes me long for hearty, soul-nourishing fare. I hit the comfort food jackpot last night with Celestin’s house gumbo, crammed with fat tiger shrimp, silky-soft scallops, chunks of chicken and thick slices of andouille sausage. Immersed in an earthy, lusty broth, this rice-flecked gumbo (one order will feed two people) is a great meal to tuck into on a blustery winter evening.
