Soirée Royale, the St. Landry Chamber of Commerce's 18th annual chef competition, takes place on Monday at the Opelousas Civic Center. I'm returning as a judge, and I'm really looking forward to it. The food is always great, and the competition fierce. I'll post an update next about the winners.
Thanksgiving is just three weeks away and I'm getting excited. We'll have a table full of friends for the big event on Thursday; my sister and niece fly in that night, and my brothers and various other nieces and nephews will join us on Saturday for a big pot of seafood gumbo.
