Gumbo, potato salad cookoff to benefit Dreams Come True
FRENCH SETTLEMENT - You can enjoy great comfort food that'll bring comfort to many Louisiana families this weekend in French Settlement. Rodney and Leslie Dupre, Larry Roussel and Wendy Welch-Dampier joined John Pastorek on 2une In to talk about how you can attend the Gumbo and Potato Salad Cook-off to benefit Dreams Come True.
Roussel made a delicious chicken and andouille gumbo and told you is secret to perfecting the recipe.
"The #1 secret is timing," Roussel explains. "You got to put everything in at a certain time. I like to put the chicken in last."
Watch the video for more tips from Larry Roussel on how to make the perfect gumbo.
The Gumbo and Potato Salad Cook-off is Saturday at River Rats Bar & Grill (14365 Mecca Rd.). For $10.00, you get three bowls and can pick any three gumbos to try. All proceeds go to Dreams Come True, a group that strives to answer the wishes of children living with life-threatening illnesses.
Welch-Dampier says River Rats got involved because it's a situation that hits close to home.
"I had a critically-ill child, and there was a point in time where I thought Dreams Come True would be something that I needed," she explains. "It's a terrible feeling as a parent, and we'll do anything we can to help people in that situation."
If you're interested in cooking gumbo or potato salad for the challenge, call 328-6735 or visit River Rats Bar & Grill or Galvez Hardware Stores.
