Gumbo Cookoff Competition at Big Dog Station benefiting Gilda’s Club South Florida

So you think you can cook? You think you can gumbo? Well here’s your chance. Big Dog Station in Oakland Park is holding its annual Gumbo Cookoff Competition on November 12th with proceeds benefiting Gilda’s Club South Florida. Applications are now being accepted for teams. The winning team gets bragging rights and a trophy. Teams are made up of four, a captain and three members, so start thinking who’s gumbo-talented in your posse of friends and put your team together. There will be two gumbo categories: Seafood and Country. But I’m wondering, do you okra, filé or roux? or a combination of all three? Anyone with gumbo gumption, knows it’s all in the roux. Your secret family roux is the ticket to winning this competition.
