Default Re: Roux

Alton Brown says it, it's true. He is good. I'm a touchy feely cook, like to watch and let the food tell me what to do next, plus, my wife doesn't complain about my beer drinking and herbal medication when I'm cooking. Every comment made on this thread works, one of the beauties of cooking, there is usually more than one path to results.
One more tip about gumbo, after all ingredients are in the same pot, don't heat on anything above med heat, I use med low, and stir frequently. If anything sticks to the bottom, do not scrape it, it will put burnt flour flavor in the pot. Always use a wooden spoon.
