Which type of flour for gumbo roux?

lolgirl | Mar 16, 2012 06:33 AM

I make a lot of gumbo. Recently I ran out of flour and purchased a different brand of all purpose flour, and I am finding that this flour is inferior to the last for gumbo.

I had never thought about the flour, but I am reminded that there is much different from cake flour to bread flour. Which type of flour is best for a dark gumbo roux?
