We are just over a week away from the 9th annual Louisiana Seafood Cookoff, which will take place during the Saturday night Grand Tastings at the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience. Competing chefs this year: Blake Phillips, Restaurant Sage, Monroe; Mark Quitney, Roux Bistro, New Orleans; Celeste Gill, Cooking Up Louisiana Treasures; Nathan Richard, Kingfish Kitchen & Cocktails; Bradley Andries, Sac-a-lait Restaurant; Frederick Ngo, Jimmy's Seafood & Steak, Shreveport; Ryan Gaudet, Spahr's Seafood, Galliano, Thibodaux, Des Allemands; Scott Varnedoe, Restaurant IPO, Baton Rouge; Lyle Broussard, Jack Daniel's Bar and Grill, Lake Charles; Amy Sins, Langlois, New Orleans; and Brian Bajon, Barcadia, New Orleans.
Good luck to you all! The winner will be crowned King or Queen of Louisiana Seafood and will go on to represent Louisiana in the Great American Seafood Cookoff later this year, as well as other events around the country over the coming year. You'll find me at the judge's table; stop by and say hello if you're attending.
There's a new food-oriented radio show here in New Orleans: The Cuisine Report on WGSO. It's daily, broadcast from 1:00 - 3:00PM, or available via podcast. Yours truly was the guest this past Monday; you can hear the interview by clicking here; my segment starts at about the 3:45 minute mark.
There's lots to do around the entire state and the weather is supposed to be beautiful. Find something to do this weekend, enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and as always, let me know what's on your mind.
