Christmas Day 2015 Mel is amazing. He will turn 91 on January 3rd. He loved the gumbo and told me it was “among the best” he’s had. That is a compliment because of the fierce competition over the years
He had 2 big bowls. It was “okra-less” dark roux gumbo with chicken, crawfish, andouille sausage, shrimp, fresh lump crab, fresh serrano, banana, chile & habanero peppers from our garden topped w/ a big juicy raw oyster in the center w/ a dusting of file powder served w/ corn bread muffins and a crisp light pinot grigio. Yummmmm….
