This was our first year participating in the United Way’s annual “Got Gumbo?” Cook-off, and I can safely say that this won’t be the last time that we throw our hat in the ring! In addition to good drinks, lively music, and enough gumbo options to overwhelm even the heartiest of appetites, the proceeds from the event help fund a fantastic cause.
Palate New Orleans provided portions of seafood gumbo to over 400 attendees and decorated a lovely Louisiana bayou themed table- complete with pirogues, crab nets, oyster shells and irises. We ended the night with a second place finish in the Best Seafood Gumbo category.
Read more about the details of the night on Nola.com. Laura Cayouette also covers the night’s events in her L.A. to N.O.LA blog, where she lists Palate New Orleans’ table as her “favorite float display.” Thanks, Laura!
All in all, it was a fantastic night. But, our Chef, Walker Geoffray, has one competitive spirit! So, I’m sure next year will be one for the books. Make sure not to miss us at the next annual Got Gumbo cook-off and support a fantastic cause, The United Way.
