Chicago chef Rick Tramonto cooking Gulf seafood with White House Chef Comerford

| No Comments

from Obamafoodorama:

On Monday, Sept. 13, White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford and FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg will continue the unprecedented White House campaign to promote Gulf seafood, a critical component of the region's economy that's been deeply harmed by the BP oil spill.

The Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board is sponsoring the events, which formally kick off on Sunday evening with a reception and "dine around." Famed New Orleans chefs John Besh and John Folse are leading the local delegation, along with Chicago chef Rick Tramonto, who is opening a new resturant in New Orleans. Chefs from across America have been invited to participate. The Food Network will be filming the whole seafood shindig for an upcoming episode of My Life In Food.
