ABOUT THE MISSISSIPPI SEAFOOD COOK-OFF
This premier cooking competition was created by Mississippi Seafood Marketing to promote the domestic, fresh, sustainable seafood industry located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The state’s most talented chefs compete for the title of king or queen of Mississippi Seafood, as they prepare their signatures dishes in front of a live audience. Then, a panel of judges score each chef. Chefs will be judged on characteristics such as presentation, creativity, composition, craftsmanship and flavor.
The winner of our state cook-off will represent Mississippi in August at the Great American Seafood Cook-Off in New Orleans, Louisiana.,as they compete against chefs throughout the country for the national seafood crown.
