I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Gumbo?Edit
I rarely eat gumbo. In fact, I only eat it once a year. But on that one day I eat A LOT of it; all thanks to BlueBell’s annual gumbo cook-off. This year’s competition was pretty much standard fare (yet definitely delicious). Held at the Rammer Jammer, there were multiple entries in the battle of which BlueBeller cooked the best southern style stew. No surprise here, Dr. Breeland once again won first place. Although, I have to commend new BlueBell resident, Dr. Zoe Hart, on placing second. Her gumbo was out of this world. Seriously! Clearly, she brought her New York City foodie-ness to this year’s cook-off. It’s common knowledge that NYC is like one of the best cities in the world for food (as well as the best city for like a billion other reasons, obviously). From the use of molecular gastronomy to fabulous dim sum to the raw food movement (as evidenced in the “Sex and the City” episode Great Sexpectations when Samantha first meets Smith while he’s working at the restaurant Raw), New York knows good food. Fortunately for everyone in BlueBell, we now have our very own cosmopolitan chef. Next thing you know we’ll all be eating sushi and knishes.
