Here is Creole Cooking, I can’t put it any better than this;
- South Africans gave us KINGOMBO, meaning OKRA,
- The Native Americans gave us powdered sassafras leaves and called it FILE’ POWDER,
- The French gave us Fat and Flour and called it ROUX,
- The Spanish gave us Sofrito and called it THE TRINITY,
- Germans gave us SMOKED SAUSAGES, and the
- Caribbeans gave us their HOT SPICES. Hope this helps.
