Armed with knives, folks, spoons and spices, participants in the Tabasco Global Kitchen NOLA Navy Cook-Off Louisiana Seafood Challenge fought over stoves ablaze with some of the Gulf’s best seafood for the 2018 seafood title celebrating the city’s Tercentennial. Local chefs joined cooks from the visiting naval armada representing the U.S., Canadian and French Navies, as well as the U.S. Coast Guard, for the Seafood Battle of New Orleans at Manning’s at Harrah’s in the French Quarter.
