NEW ORLEANS — Ryan Cashio, Executive Chef of Cajun House and Catering in LaPlace, and Culinary Specialist First Class Emily Gibson of the 2nd Fleet Command joined forces and placed second in NOLA Navy Week’s Seafood Cook-Off.

According to the Gulf Seafood Foundation newsroom, the Riverwalk was the hot spot to be on April 20 as Naval culinary specialists from France and the United States partnered with South Louisiana chefs for a seafood showdown.

According to Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser, whose office oversees the Seafood Board, “Nola Navy Week combines the best of those who serve at sea along with the best who serve our seafood caught here in Louisiana waters.  The Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board and Louisiana Office of Tourism are proud to be part of this tradition by hosting the seafood cook-off.  Watching some of our finest Louisiana chefs team with U.S. Navy chefs to create unique dishes with our Louisiana seafood means it’s time to Feed Your Soul! I thank every participant for being here today and congratulate the winners.”
