Taste buds needed for event

The tables are set and Minden's Iron Chefs event, hosted by Gibsland Bank and Trust, is just around the corner. The only thing missing? Some willing taste testers.

According to Catherine Hunt, Minden-South Webster Chamber of Commerce representative, the Iron Chef plate is full this year.

"We will have around 20 stations for tasting," Hunt said. "Chef Pascal from Minden Medical Center is cooking Cauliflower & Broccoli Cannellonni. Gene Reynolds is cooking Fish En Brochette. Jerri Ray DePingre will serve up her "House" made ice cream, which is out of the world and Annie Bell Walker will have her famous brownies."

Other treats include jambalaya by Richland State Bank, gumbo by Morris Guin, ribs by R & V Works and a special recipe from the the Krewe des Ambassadeurs that is in their new cookbook.

"These are just of few of the items that we will be serving on Sunday," said Hunt. "We want to give a special thanks to the Coca-Cola Bottling Company and KASO Radio for their help in making this event successful."

GBT and the Minden-South Webster Chamber of Commerce will host the event on Sunday, July 31 at the Minden Civic Center from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Blue Plate sponsors include Minden Medical Center, R & V Works, Richland State Bank, TG Garden and Gifts, Waller Petroleum, Jerri Ray DePingre, Morris Guin, Gerald Holland and Gene Reynolds.

Tastings are $10 per person, kids under 12 are free. Tickets may be purchased or picked up at GBT, South Beach Tanning, the Minden-South Webster Chamber of Commerce office or from a committee member.

Tickets may also be purchased at the door. Proceeds will be used to continue to enhance the chamber of commerce.
