Well whut you fail to realize is dumb yankees from Ole Virginny aint got a clue about whut it take to make decent cajun food. So why dont you just shut the hell up for a change?
Larry Wolfe said:Woodman said:OK. How is it better made at home? I agree, you should try it once or twice to get the experience, but unless it is bringing something else to the party.......forget about making roux!
I NEVER SAID IT WAS BETTER!!! I simply said "making the roux is what makes the gumbo". Meaning it's the time, thought, practice, heart of taking the time to make a good properly made roux yourself versus just using a store bought product. So yeah I think it does bring something to the party!
Store bought cookie dough tastes good, but would you call them "homemade" cookies? Store bought pizza dough is good, but not like you mixed it and hand tossed it yourself. Get my point now?
I'm not trying to argue about this, just saying I get more personally out of taking the additional time and practice doing certain things, the hard way. Not that making a roux is hard....... If you like what you're using for your roux, fine. That's all that matters.
