There's nothing like a warm bowl of gumbo, and I especially like a seafood gumbo. Making a big pot of gumbo is a little labor intensive, but it lasts for days and only gets better with time. Ben Thibodeaux, chef de cuisine of Dickie Brennan's Tableau in Le Petit Theatre, says, "Our warm, fertile waters help our blue crabs get nice and fat, which lends a sweetness to the seafood gumbo. Whether it's crab claws sauteed in browned butter or jumbo lump. Where most seafood gumbos revolve around a peanut butter-colored roux, include tomatoes, are lighter and feature okra, Link's gumbo had its shrimp and crabs swimming in a classic "dark chocolate" Cajun roux, no tomato at all, and was thickened with file powder.
