It takes its name from a Bantu word for okra, one of the dish's typical ingredients, which is prized for its ability to give body to a sauce. Gumbo is a thick soup or stew often served over rice. It is of Louisiana Creole origin and comes from the time when slave ships docked at the port of New Orleans for re-supply.

The dish combines ingredients typical of several local cuisines, including celery, bell pepper, onion, parsley, okra, and filé powder. Gumbo is usually made with seafood (usual shellfish), sausage or chicken, and a roux, which is either dark brown or almost black.

Gumbo has its cultural roots in some of the earliest interactions between Europeans and Africans on the North American continent, particularly those involving food and religion, as well as other cultural interactions.

The African origin of okra may explain one of the reasons that gumbo is often thickened with this vegetable or with filé powder, an herb made from ground dried sassafras leaves, introduced to Louisiana by Choctaw Indians in the early 18th century. Many varieties of gumbo exist and have been documented throughout history.

They usually begin with a dark roux, the combination of flour and fat cooked together until it is brown. The roux for gumbo is made by cooking equal parts of fat (traditionally lard though Cajun cooks often substitute vegetable oil) and flour over medium heat. Because of this step, which can take up to an hour, gumbo is often considered to be one of the "long-cooked" Louisiana dishes. Gumbo is traditionally made in a cast-iron pot or Dutch oven.

Gumbo is typically made with a rich dark roux but can be made without it. Seafood is usually not used in Louisiana Creole cuisine but shellfish such as shrimp are common in the Creole gumbo. Shrimp, ham, chicken, duck or oxtail are also occasionally used in place of the more traditional pork.

Gumbos often include onions, celery, and bell peppers. Most gumbos start with a roux, which is used as a thickener for the stew-like dish. Gumbos often include the holy trinity of celery, bell peppers, and onions. The fond (brown bits) left in the bottom of a pan after cooking meat or vegetables is sometimes added to provide additional flavor.
