It's almost time for the Tennessee Equality Project's annual Gumbo Tasting Competition and Mardi Gras Party. Registration is now open for gumbo-cooking teams.
The event will be held on Sunday, February 10th at 4:30 p.m. at Earnestine & Hazel's, but teams must register by February 1st. Registration is limited and teams will be assigned on a first-come basis.
Gumbos are judged by professional chefs, restauranteurs, foodies, and other public figures on the basis of aroma, consistency, taste, and after-taste. Teams can be any size, but at least one team member must be present to serve their gumbo. Non-seafood and vegetarian gumbos are allowed.
The $25 entry fee benefits TEP's work to advance and protect LGBT equality in the state.
