The Southern Foodways
Alliance and TABASCO created
the Southern Gumbo Trail in an effort to document the history, tradition,
and culture of gumbo. This is an on-going project. There will be
regular additions to the oral history archive, as well as to the
locations on our interactive map.
The Southern Gumbo Trail is also a resource for cultural
tourists who would like to hit the road in search of authentic and
unique culinary experiences. We hope you will use the Gumbo Trail
as your guide.
Grab a spoon and go!
