Celebrate the hit new show The Originals with New Orleans gumbo

See also

In case you haven’t heard there's a new family in town, or rather a very old family. They just happen to be vampires. The hit new show, The Originals, a spin off of the wildly popular series, The Vampire Diaries, is settling in very nicely. The intrigue and body count is already heating, and adding up.

Now we all know that vampires have little use for regular cuisine, but when most folks think of New Orleans gumbo comes to mind. One of the vamps even mentions gumbo in the last episode of The Originals and just thinking about a bowl served over rice or with a crusty French baguette makes the mouth water. Rich and hearty this dish could almost satisfy even Klaus’ appetite.

The video above lists step by step instructions, and exact amounts of ingredients. The easy to follow guide will have you whipping up this traditional favorite in no time.

So why not simmer up a batch of this hearty gumbo, pour a glass of mulled wine blood punch, and settle in for some great vampire drama. Werewolves and witches seem to be thrown in for good measure.
