|Shrimp Boudin, Duck Spring Rolls, Grilled Squid,|
I ran into Michael Maddux from The Mighty Rib , another reporter I'd met from the Galveston Daily News, and a local Sports DJ who does a food show every Saturday. We had some fun talking shop (aka FOOD) as we sampled the dishes and proffered our comments on them. Personally I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the stages of creation as Chefs chopped, pounded, fried, simmered, sauced, glazed and plated all kinds of dishes. It was like being in the middle of an episode of chopped or Hell's Kitchen, but with less cussing and more happy eating. That works just fine for me.
Below, you will see a nice batch of collages of food and folks. Feast your eyes on the food.

Thanks to the Landry's Family of Companies and Katelyn Roche for inviting me to observe this event from within the kitchen. I also want to thank all the Chefs for putting up with our presence in their collective kitchen. It was a pleasure to watch them create some really fabulous dishes. This event was A LOT of fun on several levels!
And remember to Eat Happy, Y'all!!!
