The Long Table dining events are a great chance to meet new people as well as trying something new, and with this one – you will be able to try a Deep South Chicken & Prawn Gumbo served with a Corn bread muffin, paired with a glass of Chenin blanc.

Gumbo is a stew that originated in southern Louisiana during the 18th century. It consists primarily of a strongly-flavored stock, meat or shellfish, a thickener, and what Louisianians call the “Holy Trinity” of vegetables, namely celery, bell peppers, and onions.

Gumbo is often categorized by the type of thickener used, the vegetable okra, the Choctaw spice filé powder (dried and ground sassafras leaves), or roux, the French base made of flour and fat. The dish likely derived its name from either a word from a Bantu language for okra (ki ngombo) or the Choctaw word for filé (kombo).

This is a hearty stew that’s packed full of flavour. Chicken is simmered with prawns, smoked sausage and okra is a spicy sauce. Served over freshly cooked rice.
