Gumbo isn’t just a staple of New Orleans – this delicious dish tells the story of the rich heritage of The Big Easy and its people and to this day remains highly controversial in the city’s culinary scene. Come hungry for this tour: you’re about to experience the many styles of gumbo and the fascinating history behind Louisiana’s official state cuisine! Your tour will take place in New Orleans’ French Quarter, the oldest neighborhood in the city and where your senses will be invigorated around every corner: this is the place for some of the best food in the city! As we set out from Jackson Square, you’ll spot some iconic landmarks like St. Louis Cathedral and the balcony-wrapped buildings typical of the Victorian era in the U.S. From here, you’ll be sampling the various styles of this dish that have been influenced by the mix of cultures attracted to the Crescent City and formed it into the melting pot it’s known as today. You’ll learn how each immigrant population tweaked the gumbo recipe, from Cajun and Creole to Native American and African, all the while filling up on this most hearty soup. If you still have room for it, we’ll end with a dessert that’s just as ingrained in the city’s history and culture as gumbo. After your whirlwind tasting tour of long-established and off-the-beaten track eateries, you’ll be able to weigh in on the impossible question: whose gumbo is the best in all of New Orleans?
