Beauford's Gumbo Recipe

During his New York years, Beauford submitted a recipe for gumbo to Grenwich Village Gourmet. One of our readers, Raymina Mays, graciously sent me images of the cover of the publication and the recipe* itself, which is signed by Beauford.

Thanks, Raymina, for this invaluable contribution to the Les Amis blog!

*In Amazing Grace, David A. Leeming indicates that the recipe was published in 1949 and that according to Beauford's family tradition, his maternal grandfather had come from Dahomey.

I know this is an old post, but I just made this Gumbo following your recipe and I cannot tell you how nicely it turned out. It is delicious!
