Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Gumbo Day

Gumbo is the official state cuisine of the U.S. state of Louisiana. It is a thick stew-like soup of meat, okra, and Creole and Cajun seasonings.

The main difference between gumbo and jambalaya is the role of the rice, which is integral to both. Gumbo is served with rice that is cooked separately, but rice goes into the jambalaya pot.
