Celebrate Mardi Gras: Make a great Louisiana gumbo

Posted:

Mardi Gras refers to the events of the Carnival celebration. In French, it means “Fat Tuesday,” the culminating day of the festival, which, this year, falls on Feb. 28. Its name reflects the fat, rich food and drink consumed — often in overindulgence! — before the time of ritual fasting and self-denial known as Lent.
