no not offended however New Orleans is bad example it has gone down in recent years. I went a couple years ago and was very disappointed wasn't the N.O.L.A that I remember.
I turned my girlfriend on to Gumbo shes from New York and she loves it.
We ordered some in New Orleans and wow it tasted like the dumped a whole canister of salt in it and charged us $15 a bowl for it.
The other main difference is New Orleans is mostly Creole food and I live 2 hours West of New Orleans and here its Cajun.
Now if you want a recipe for Gumbo I can give you one I made myself I have yet to find anyone that can even come close.
