There are two distinct varieties of gumbo from Louisiana: "Creole gumbo," popular in the southeastern New Orleans area, and "Cajun gumbo," from the southwest.  Creole gumbo is loaded with succulent seafood such as shrimp and shellfish, while Cajun gumbos take pride in poultry like duck and turkey - and neither skimp on the andouille sausage.  Both spectacular styles are represented here, so whether you want a great New Orleans gumbo or a kicked-up creole variety, your National Gumbo Day is sure to be a good one!
