Winners of Rex’s Gumbo Challenge Announced In My Inbox


Funny enough, I actually did wake up thinking about yesterday’s gumbo challenge at Rex’s Seafood Market this morning. (Well, I drove by the market on my way to work. Pretty much the same thing.) When I got to the office, I had an email from a nice man named Doug telling me the results. Love it when things work out like that. Here it is:

My name is Doug (redacted). I live in University Park. I came in second place with my crab and shrimp gumbo. The winner was a guy who drove in from New Iberia La named Eric and served his chicken and Andouille gumbo. There were 5 professional judges.

There was also the “Peoples Choice Award” voted on by the 100 people who showed up to sample our gumbo.

I won that!

Way to go Doug! And if you’d like to send your recipe, we wouldn’t be opposed.
