I am looking forward to the Great American Seafood Cookoff taking place on Saturday during the Louisiana Restaurant Association's annual Foodservice & Hospitality Expo here in New Orleans -- good luck to Chef Michael Brewer! Sunday, that stage is turned over to 4-H teams from Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Arkansas; they will also be preparing dishes featuring seafood. I am acting as co-MC, and looking forward to some creative, innovative dishes. If you're attending the expo, look me up; I'd love to say hello.
