May the Best Gumbo Win

Do you have what it takes to be the last one standing in a Gumbo Cook-Off? Here’s your chance to prove it with Seville Quarter’s Gumbo Cook-Off, benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida.

On Saturday, March 24 in the Phineas Phogg’s room, amateur and professional teams will compete for the “Best Gumbo in Pensacola” title. Each individual gumbo will be judged on taste, smell, color and consistency. Trophies will be awarded to the top three winners. There will also be  Showmanship and People’s Choice trophies.

The competition’s entry fee is $20 per three person team and is limited to 15 teams. Seville Quarter will supply tables, burners, and a clean-up area. Each team must prepare their gumbo from scratch at Seville Quarter. Cooking begins at 11 a.m. and judging begins at 4 p.m. The public will taste from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. To be a professional taster, the fee is $10 with proceeds benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida.
