Louisiana Seafood Cook-off

This past weekend, the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience took over the city at restaurants, event spaces, and parks all across the city. This extravagant event is an opportunity for chefs, restaurants, and wineries to showcase the unique flavors of New Orleans cuisine to the thousands of locals and tourists who attend.

Within this experience is the Louisiana Seafood Cook-off, sponsored by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board.  Several New Orleans chefs create dishes around the unique seafood of Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico. The winner gets the chance to represent Louisiana in the Great American Seafood Cook-off that occurs each fall.  Competition is fierce, as ten chefs from some of New Orleans top restaurants brought their creativity and innovation to the judges in hopes to earn the crown. This year, Chef Aaron Burgau from Patois won with his dish: Crawfish and Pappardelle Pasta with Ramp Greens Puree and Uni Butter.
