Louisiana: Gumbo
Aside from the stereotypical New Orleans po' boy and beignet, gumbo is a Louisiana food in relation to the whole state. A stew that originates from southern Louisiana, gumbo consists of primarily a strongly-flavored stock, meat or shellfish (usually shrimp), a thickener, and celery, bell peppers, and onions.

Depending on your background and where in Louisiana you're from, depends on what type of gumbo you may consider the best, based on what thickener you use: the African vegetable okra, the Choctaw spice file powder, or roux, the French base bade of flour and fat.
