Good Morning Foodies! Well, tonight is the big night for all those competing in the “ SOIREE ROYALE COOK-OFF!” This event gives Acadiana’s Finest Chefs a chance to showcase their creations. I am very excited to be included in the judging. I am not sure which categories I will be involved in but I am sure that they will all be delicious. I know I will have a most difficult time in picking a winner. In my book, they are all winners! I hope many of you have bought tickets and join in all the festivities that are planned. Grab your best buddy, family member or someone new to the community and indulge in all the wonderful food and beverages that will be available to everyone! This is the 15th year for this event. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. at Evangeline Downs Event Center. The proceeds go toward scholarships for students in the St. Landry Parish area. If you need more information go to the website, (opelousaschamber.org) or call (337)942-2683. This week the menus will be elegant to the eye but so easy to prepare. Give them a try. Hope to see you tonight! Have a great day!
