We are Cynthia Boyd-Yette and Terry Yette owners of Cynthia’s Gumbo Express Inc.
Cynthia's Gumbo Express Inc. has been established September- 2013, but I have been catering over 20 years after graduating from C.H.I.C. (Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago) now known as Le Cordon Bleu.
I've always been fascinated by the food and culture of Louisiana and I came across this gumbo recipe that I have passionately worked on and perfected for over 20 years, which has become my secret recipe, that will now be in my family’s history. Making gumbo is a labor of love. It requires a lot of ingredients, prep work and some know-how to make good gumbo every time. It started once a year, like everyone,Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years. People would only eat gumbo in the winter, but you can eat gumbo all year round.
We wanted to offer gumbo as another fast food option, served fast, fresh and consistent.
We found that customers wanted gumbo all the time, but they wanted good gumbo, now their comments are “delicious” and “off the chain”.
We sell our gumbo at farmers markets around town and we cater "Gumbo by the Gallon! Let us cater your next event!
