ChatGPT Gives Gumbo Recipe, Includes Tomatoes, Then Begs for Forgiveness
We take our gumbo seriously in Acadiana. Part of this seriousness centers around putting tomatoes in it.
Do tomatoes belong in gumbo?
The actual answer to that polarizing question depends on whether you learned how to cook gumbo from a Cajun cook, or a Creole cook.
Cajun and Creole cooking are two distinct culinary traditions that have notable differences in terms of ingredients, techniques, and cultural backgrounds.
The main difference being tomatoes.
What you put in your gumbo and how you want to cook is your business. If it tastes great to you, then that's the right way to cook it.
J0hnsKn0w specifically asked "How do I make a gumbo from scratch? Please provide detail. I want a chicken and sausage gumbo."
AI started out pretty strong with the roux. Nothing wrong there.
But, that's when it included a 14oz can of tomatoes for the gumbo.
Now, in all fairness, J0hnsKn0w didn't specify whether he wanted to make a Cajun or Creole gumbo, but this is where it gets pretty amusing.
His response was "Tomatoes absolutely do not belong in a traditional Cajun gumbo. I was born and raised in Acadiana and this is sacrilegious."
This is where the chatbot began to grovel and apologize, trying to get back into J0hnsKn0w's good graces.
And J0hnsKn0w didn't let up.
He really turned the screws with his last cry of "But why?"
