New Orleans

Paper bag test - in an under-reported phenomenon in the mainstream (aka white) media, there was and in some places still is (remember Spike Lee's School Days?) a fair amount of racism between light-skinned (also known as creole) African Americans and darker skinned African Americans. Some places, not only in New Orleans but around Louisiana as well, would have what was known as the paper bag test. If your skin color was darker than a paper bag (and I don't know which brand they used) you were not allowed to participate in whatever activity was going on or able to go into whatever establishment you were trying to gain entrance to. This happened in New Orleans and up around Natchitotches/Cane River area in central Louisiana.

In cooking as far as I know, Creole refers to the combination of French and African cooking that evolved in 18th and 19th century and Cajun refers to the swamp dwelling displace Canadians and their way of using plants and animals native to the Atchafalaya Basin for their cooking. This might be something for the Cod to explore.

Glad the gumbo was good. Anti-versary day in NOLA had its moments, but in many ways was underwhelming. We're all glad that a year has gone by and we can get over the quick fix sentiment and settle in for some long hard sad work.

There is no end in "gumbo versions"! Number of yummy gumbo recipes is endless, since people tend to experiment and make their own gumbo recipes! Basically everybody modify the recipe to their own taste! And everybody will always say that their gumbo recipe is the best!
