Young Chefs Get Big Opportunity at the Youth Gumbo Cook-Off

Young Chefs Get Big Opportunity at the Youth Gumbo Cook-Off

Posted: Aug 11, 2021 5:23 PM

The most important part of tradition is the passing of customs from one generation to the next. The
World Championship Gumbo CookOff takes pride in continuing the tradition of cooking a delicious
gumbo through the Youth World Championship Gumbo CookOff every year. This year, the event is
proudly sponsored by LA Classic Roofing. If you are between the ages of 9 & 17, and want to be part of
this global event, contact Gumbo Headquarters (Chamber Office) at 337-364-1836.

The event takes place on the Saturday of Gumbo Weekend (October 9th & 10th), and serving begins at
3pm. The Chamber’s friends at LA Classic Roofing will assist your team in finding a competing gumbo
team to sponsor your group as you prepare and compete just like an official gumbo team would!
Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to honor tradition, listen to live music, and celebrate what we do
best- gumbo!
