    . . .here is the recipe for Enrothian Gumbo:

    (Note: Since I've never seen spicy andouille sausage in Enroth, I assume it's unavailable. I suggest killing a green or red dragon and curing the meat into sausage, since these dragons are rumored to be fiery. Black dragons are a little too fiery for most people. The flour for the roux, if not available locally, can surely be found by sending ships to Lord British's Brittania. The Avatar assures me that many, many people in Britannia grow and mill their own wheat. Similarly, rice can probably be found in Tamriel, but not in cold, frosty Skyrim. Try the southern ports around Morrowind or Black Marsh.)

    Enrothian Gumbo

    First, make a roux by heating fat in a large pot over a hot firepit. When the resulting fat covers the bottom of the pot, stir in a tankardful of flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Keep stirring until the roux is the color of a tarnished copper, about one hour or so. Now add one boneless, skinless chicken cut into thumb-sized pieces, and a similar weight of the dragon sausage, cut into rounds. Heat until the meat is cooked on all sides. Now add 6 to 8 tankardsful of chicken broth or water, if broth is unavailable. When the mixture comes to a boil again, add a tankardful of diced onion, one green pepper, diced, and several ribs of celery cut into slightly larger dice. When the mixture then comes to a boil again, shift the pot to a lesser heated area, and add a bay leaf, essence of dragonbreath (for more spice, since Cajun seasoning is unavailable throughout the Universe of Arr Pea Gee,) and a tankardful of okra cut into rounds the thickness of your little finger. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for another hour or so, until slightly thickened. Serve in bowls over cooked rice. Enjoy!

    Note: This recipe has been tested in Enroth's Test Kitchen, and has received the Good Hovelkeeping Seal of Approval.
