Once again this year, the local United Way will present a veritable parade of gumbos as part of one of its more popular fund-raisers.

On Friday, Jan. 18, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., the United Way hosts its eighth annual "Got Gumbo Cook-Off" at the Chateau Sonesta Hotel, 800 Iberville St., in the D. H. Holmes Ballroom.

Restaurants participating in the event include Arnaud’s, the Bombay Club, Brennan’s, Chateau Sonesta, Desire Oyster Bar, Dickie Brennan’s Steak House, Palace Café, the Red Fish Grill, the Savvy Gourmet and others.

Chefs from each restaurant will prepare a pot of gumbo and/or a specialty dessert. A contribution to the United Way ($20 in advance, or $25 at the door) buys you the chance to try them all.

A panel of lucky locals selected to judge the various recipes will name a best in show gumbo.
