The Youth Gumbo Cookoff is a part of the Gumbo Cookoff that shines a spotlight on the children who carry on the tradition of cooking a delicious Louisiana staple. The event started years ago when Cookoff legend, Mr. Kernis Louviere, brought the idea to the Cookoff Committee. The event quickly grew in popularity, and we are proud to contribute to the continuing of our favorite traditions and culture.
Competing youth teams are required to be sponsored by a competing amatuer or professional gumbo team. Serving begins at 3:00pm on Saturday!
