    What is Tony Chachere's roux? and where can I get it? I am living in Aviano Italy, and don't have acess to places like wal-mart and such. Are there any subs for this? - 8/30/09

    Tony Chachere's is a line of creole seasoning products, which can be found in most U.S. stores. It can be ordered online. The advantage to using this is that it has no oil or fat. Roux is typically flour cooked in oil, used to thicken and deepen the flavor of stews.
