    What goes with Gumbo?

    A friend invited DH and I over for dinner tonight. He's making gumbo. I'd love to bring something with that would compliment the gumbo, but am at a loss as to what.

    Suggestions? I'm open to a side dish, dessert, or just about anything at this point!
    Life finds a way to amaze and amuse me everyday.

    I had a similar invitation and brought cornbread which complemented the meal.

    crusty french bread is perfect, although I like cornbread too.

    I was going to suggest crusty bread or cornbread and a bottle of wine. Have fun!

    Rice! A big bowl of white or brown rice with butter and cilantro.

    I have taken Flan, as a dessert, when invited for Gumbo.

    In Louisiana, we usually just serve gumbo with rice and either saltines or french bread. I've never ever eaten gumbo with cornbread, but it might well be a hit. I like some kind of lemon or other fruit dessert after a spicy dish.

    I usually make cole slaw to go with gumbo and French bread. In the Acadiana area of south Louisiana potato salad is served IN the gumbo.

    I'd take a dessert or bottle of wine ... or both.

    We were just in Louisiana this past weekend and had the best gumbo ever at Prejeans. They served white rice along with it and it was all it needed I wonder too though if cornbread would work.
    I love cooking with wine sometimes I even put it in the food.
