Got a winning gumbo recipe stashed away somewhere? It’s time to bring it out. Rex’s Seafood Market is hosting it’s second annual Gumbo Challenge this Sunday (Jan 31). If you want to participate, you have to call Rex’s and tell them what kind of gumbo you’re making. On the day of the challenge, you bring your dish to the Market (hot, please) at 2pm. The party goes from 3–6, and the winner gets a prize (I just called, and they hadn’t decided yet what the prize will be. Probably in-store credit). There’s no charge to get in, and there will be drinks, food, lots of gumbo tasting, and both a general vote and a judge’s vote.

Sounds like a great excuse to practice your gumbo-making before the Superbowl next weekend.

    Do they need any professional gumbo tasters?
