  •  Making a Jazz Gumbo: October 26, November 30, December 28th!!! The New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park partners with the French Market to create a sensory tour of the history of jazz and gumbo in this monthly offering during CCFM. On the last Wednesday of each month during the start of “gumbo season” (Oct-December), three jazz musicians and educators from the Jazz Park play alongside local historian, tour guide, and cooking demonstrator, Dianne “Gumbomarie” Honoré, who explains the origins of gumbo and walks the audience through her family recipe, offering samples at the end.  This is a wonderful overview of two key components of New Orleans culinary and musical history, explained informally but thoroughly through cooking and live performance.
