Poudre de Filé
Filé powder is a native North American herb made from dried and ground sassafras leaves. It has a woodsy, earthy flavour reminiscent of root beer. It is as important as a thickener as a flavour – most notable for the quintessential Cajun/Creole soup/stew: Gumbo, as in “a crawfish pie and a jambalaya and a filé gumbo… son of gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou.” Filé roughly means “stringy”, and this is important: It must be added to gumbo at the end of cooking, off the heat – if boiled, it will transform your gumbo into a stringy, unappetizing mess. It is often passed at the table and added to taste.
