Published 12:00 am Saturday, October 26, 2019

LAPLACE — St. Charles Catholic High School’s Alumni Association is pleased to announce its Annual Alumni Cook-off in conjunction with Homecoming activities on Nov. 1.

The St. Charles Catholic High School Alumni President and Cook-Off Chairperson is Brock Anderson, Class of 1996. The Annual Alumni Cook-Off is always held on the evening of the Homecoming game and motorcade. Alumni cooks serve great food, from seafood eggrolls to alligator sauce picante.

The head chef must be an SCC alumni, and contestants supply their own ingredients or secure a sponsor to pay for the ingredients. SCC will provide all serving dishes and utensils.

Food may be cooked offsite but should be cooked on Nov. 1. All entries must be complete, delivered to St. Charles Catholic High School, and ready to be served by 5:15 p.m. Chefs wishing to cook on SCC grounds are welcome to do so beginning at 10 a.m.  Cooking booths will be selected on a first come, first served basis.

A prestigious group of judges will judge all entries.  After samples to be judged have been collected, an announcement will be made to start serving the public at approximately 5:45 p.m.  A First Place chef’s paddle decorated by St. Charles Catholic’s art class will be awarded. A People’s Choice award will also be awarded this year.

Everyone is invited to come out and taste the great cooking!  There are two ways to enjoy the great dishes: four taster bowls for $10 or one bowl for $5.
