The dish combines ingredients and culinary practices of several cultures, including French, Spanish, German, Filipino, West African, and Choctaw. Gumbo may have been based on traditional West African or native dishes, or may be a derivation of the French dish bouillabaisse , or Choctaw stew, but most likely all three dishes contributed to the original recipe. It was first described in 1802, and was listed in various cookbooks in the latter half of the 19th century. The dish gained more widespread popularity in the 1970s, after the United States Senate dining room added it to the menu in honor of Louisiana Senator Allen Ellender . The popularity of chef Paul Prudhomme in the 1980s spurred further interest in the dish. Gumbo is the official cuisine of the state of Louisiana.

Before that we were gone for a whole month touring first England with Joel Savoy and Jesse Lege as the Cajun Country Revival! Such an amazing tour. We gave a quick waltz and cajun two-step lesson at almost every concert and it was amazing to see people dance all night! The tour with the Cajuns finished in Wales at the fantastic Fire in the Mountain festival where Caleb and Reeb joined us! We were on double duty with Foghorn and Cajun Country Revival. Jesse and Joel went back home and Foghorn continued on to Ireland where we played concerts for a whole week, finishing up in County Mayo for the Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival! A million thanks to everyone who made our trip so unforgettable!
