Gumbo ShopNobody does Macque Choux Corn (pronounced Mock Shoe) better than the Gumbo Shop in the French Quarter. Although no one seems to know for sure, this Cajun dish os believed to have been influenced by Native American culture. Both sweet and spicy, it makes a great companion to any Louisiana dish. You can purchase the Gumbo Shop cookbook here.


  • 1 heaping cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • ½ fresh ripe tomato, chopped (about ½ pound)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Melt the butter over medium heat in a large, heavy-bottom saucepan.
  • Add the chopped onion, bell pepper and garlic and sauté until tender.
  • Add the white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, sugar, and corn kernels. Stir well.
