More than 150 chefs from around the nation are planning to show their support for Gulf of Mexico seafood by cooking and serving it in what's been dubbed "America's Night Out
for Gulf Seafood."

The Dec. 1 event will see prominent chefs serving seafood to diners, friends and family, to show they recommend the product.

Sales of seafood have dropped since the BP oil spill this summer.

Although experts have said seafood reaching the market is safe and untainted by oil, consumers have been reluctant to try it.

The program will kick off Wednesday in New Orleans.
