Nice kitchen Morpheus! I didn't know you were a gourmet chef. Let us know how the chocolate veggies turn out! Mrs. Morph must be one happy lady!

aw shucks.... I probably could have darkened the roux a bit more, but I chickened out.

Is that an electric stove? I"m impressed. I thought it took a gas stove to make a good roux... My house is all electric except for my one gas stove. Couldn't cook without it. Dig the granite countertops... I've never made a successful gumbo but I think that maybe now is my time. (I failed once or twice) I used to love seafood gumbo with oysters and shrimp and crabmeat.... over rice.. dang I want some!!

Yeah I was worried about that as well since I've observed that the burner seems to turn off and on, rather than actually varying the output. I guess you could say that it's digital Had gas at my last house and I would agree, it's better for cooking. This house is all electric, except for a gas fitting for my grill on the back patio and the fireplace.

Far as I can tell, the secret to the roux (and I'm by no means an expert) is constant stirring. I used a whisk, and I whisked it so much that it actually got a bit foamy. But, it didn't burn!

Gumbo should be no problem for a man dedicated enough to his craft to start the smoker at 2am. No time like the present! I recommend copious amounts of wine for the cook.
