Alaska Chef Lionel Uddipa took home the 2017 crown!


Each year, chefs from throughout the country are given the chance to represent their states and their home seafood in the Great American Seafood Cook-Off. Started by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board in 2004, the Cook-Off promotes domestic, sustainable seafood. Chefs cook before a live audience and present their dishes to a notable panel of six national judges who score based on presentation, creativity, composition, craftsmanship, flavor and more. Featuring a parade, entertaining hosts and renowned chefs, it’s a don’t-miss event.

Tickets are $10 at the door.
