The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation will present the first annual Treme Creole Gumbo Festival on Saturday, Dec. 13, and the third annual Holiday Bazaar Dec. 13 and 14.
The Treme Creole Gumbo Festival celebrates the history of Faubourg Treme as a hotbed of New Orleans' musical and culinary culture.
Follow recipe for chicken gumbo. Add 1 pint oysters (fresh or canned). When the duck gumbo is cooked and tender, add the oysters. It takes about 3 minutes for the oysters to cook. Be sure to add the water in which the oysters are contained for added flavor.
Bridge City's "world famous" Gumbo is cooked daily at the festival grounds and over 2000 gallons of both seafood and chicken/sausage gumbo will be prepared for our visitors during the festival.
