Food Philosophy: When is Gumbo not Gumbo?
« on: June 27, 2012, 07:05:32 pm »
Ok, so I had the idea to make chicken gumbo.  However, I know I don't have certain items.  At what point does gumbo become soup?

So, in order of importance (I feel):

No okra
No Andouille sausage
No celery for the Trinity

However, I do have File powder, and I can make a damn good roux.

Aaaaaand GO!

Okra is cow food, not people food.
It's always okay to throw a bear.

So if I add beef, then I'm adding okra by proxy.  Genius!

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial increases in corpse production.

Without okra, I'm not sure it's gumbo. But it would still be delicious.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”
