National Gumbo Day

Date When Celebrated : Always October 12 th

National Gumbo Day is today. It's a great opportunity, to enjoy a little Louisiana Cajun cooking. It is easy to participate in this special day. Simply eat some Gumbo. For those of us in the south, that is easy, as Gumbo is almost all restaurant menus. You can't walk into a restaurant in New Orleans, that does not offer it. For Northerners, it may take a little research, to find restaurants in your area that serve Gumbo. Or, you may want to look a Gumbo recipe online, and make it yourself.

Gumbo is a thick stew, with chicken, beef, or seafood. It is heavily seasoned with cajun spices. And, it absolutely must contain Okra.

Did You Know? Gumbo is the African word for Okra

 To celebrate National Gumbo Day, just have a dish of it. The day is extra special, if you make it yourself.

Have a happy  National Gumbo Day.


Origin of National Gumbo Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. The recipe dates back to 1802-1803, where it was first made in Louisiana.  

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
