TCF visitors gobble up the Gumbo

gumbo-0Among the many attractions at the Texas Crab Festival each year is the renowned Gumbo Cookoff. This year’s popular event consisted of five teams competing for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place trophies as well as the People’s Choice award. The teams began filling the air with the gumbo aroma at 8 am on Saturday morning, enticing the growing crowds to linger for their bite of the goodness. By 11 am, festival folks lined up to purchase sample cups to taste each gumbo creation. Within thirty minutes, over 300 sample cups were sold, raising over $1500 for the Lone Survivor Foundation.

The judges began the difficult calculations from their taste buds and awarded 1st Place Gumbo to Lance Bradley of Swedes Real Estate. Jan Viet with team Oh Snap picked up 2nd Place, and 3rd Place went to Philip Dusold from Not Your Partner’s Crab. And the People’s Choice Award was given to Annette Barry of Krewe La Roux.

Congratulations to all the winners, and Bill Pohl from team Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouxler for participating in the Gumbo Cookoff in support of the Lone Survivor Foundation. And many thanks to our judges: Harlan Hatcher, Paul Standley, Melba Stiefel, and Dale Enderlin with the Lone Survivor. We’ll see you again next year!
