If you’ve been to “Nawlins,” you’ve probably enjoyed beignets (hmm, another post?) and the strong French Roast Coffee at Café Du Monde or Café Beignet, sipped on a Hurricane at Pat O’Brien’s and you’ve most likely eaten a bowl of savory gumbo at one of the great restaurants.
I just keep playing music, singing, playing mind games, avoid looking at the clock and keep on stirring, minding my own business. At first the roux will be tan, then it gradually starts to darken, then it is cocoa colored, then it turns to a beautiful dark mahogany and then you have mastered it. It is an amazing thing to watch as the color changes.
