The Deal

Gumbo: A Multicultural Melting Pot, Literally

Creole recipes are some of the oldest American traditions. Dig in to our exploration of perhaps the most famous creole specialty—gumbo.

There is perhaps no greater sign of Louisiana's culinary heritage than the mélange of aromas that wafts from a pot of simmering gumbo—a cornerstone of creole cooking from as far back as the time of the Louisiana Purchase. Nearly every recipe calls for some kind of roux, a traditional French sauce that consists of butter, oil, or some other fat mixed with flour. Beyond that, the specific spices and ingredients vary wildly, but most versions of gumbo fall into one of three general categories. Seafood gumbos feature oysters, crawfish, and other catches simmered with okra and vegetables, whereas filé gumbo uses a spicy herb made from ground sassafras leaves to highlight the savory flavor of andouille, poultry, ham, or smoked links. The third variant is known as gumbo z'herbes, a vegetarian recipe traditionally served during Lent.

Despite its indisputable creole ties, gumbo can't actually be traced to a single cultural tradition. The version using filé powder, for instance, originally derives from Native American cultures. Either way, the name itself comes from the West African term “gombo,” which means “okra”—a plant native to Africa that the French colonists of Louisiana likely introduced to North America in the early 1700s.

Phaze 10

If you're looking for a soulful trip to the past, Phaze 10 offers a "sufficient reproduction of what made the jazz clubs once dotting Baltimore's Pennsylvania Avenue so famous," according to Baltimore City Paper. The sumptuous scents of Eastern Shore gumbo, shrimp and grits, and roasted chicken waft through the dining room until midnight on weekends, and bartenders keep cold drinks flowing into the night. The restaurant's brunches (unlimited mimosas or sangria optional) are wildly popular, as are the live musicians and comedians who draw crowds onto the dance floor or into peals of laughter.

Went for Sunday Brunch, not crowded (this may have been due to a football game day), and the food was delicious! Nice atmosphere too
