    "I can't help but agree with your father. I was born in Louisiana in 1940 and have enjoyed Shrimp Gumbo for many years. When you add sausage to it the shrimp flavor is overpowered. A friend of mine in La Rose said to me if it's not shrimp, it's not gumbo. His wife made wonderful gumbo and never put a hint of sausage near it. This is truly one of th..."

She's afraid it was lost in a move to the middle east in 1989.LR Beckwith"

    "Folks,This is pretty good, but it ain't gumbo. "Gumbo" means "okra". That is the literal translation. I was born and raised in Louisiana and I've had this argument with my Mother-in-law a thousand times. She loves fried okra but doesn't like it in gumbo.

    "My wife used to make this cake when we were in the Middle East. It is wonderful and the fruit will have a lovely brandy odor in the kitchen. When I took her home the starter recipe she made me get the cake recipe, also. We had the pecans in the Middle East but they're not available here in China. It is definitely worth the wait.LR Beckwith"
