Every year local chefs make gumbo for a good cause in Opelousas, Louisiana. The Gumbo Foundation chooses a different beneficiary each year, always a child with medical and related expenses. The "battle for the paddle" always takes place the last Saturday in January, and features live music and plenty gumbo to sample. Learn more at
