2015 Gentlemen's Cooking Classic - Calling all Chefs!

2015 Gentlemen's Cooking Classic - Calling all Chefs!


The Southern University at Shreveport Foundation cordially invites you to the 16th Annual Gentlemen’s Cooking Classic (SUSF/16th Annual GCC). . This food, family, and fun-filled event will be held on Saturday, June 20, 2015, at the Shreveport Convention Center, 400 Caddo Street, in downtown Shreveport, LA. The theme for this year’s event is “Precious Gems – Ladies in the House”.  With a twist this year, we have invited ladies to prepare and share their exquisite dishes with us. The Southern University at Shreveport Foundation cordially invites you to be one of our Chefs!

We invite our Chefs to prepare their favorite dishes.  You may prefer a dish that your mother or grandmother made that tickled your taste buds over the years.  If you agree to be a Chef, please prepare five-hundred (500) small-sized sample servings.  We also encourage you to enter our “Booth Decorating Contest,” which is always fun!  We have recruited true local culinary experts to judge your delectable dishes.  The food categories are appetizers, entrees, side dishes, and desserts and each category will be awarded prizes of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Whatever you choose to prepare, we’re sure it will be fantastic! If you’re a new Chef, please know that we welcome your participation. If you’re a past Chef, please sign up again this year and encourage your friends and acquaintances that enjoy cooking to participate, you are truly appreciated. Please note, for each confirmed chef referral, you will be given a $20.00 referral fee.

Remember, your participation as a Chef means a great deal to the Southern University at Shreveport Foundation.  The profit raised by this event provides scholarships to deserving students who need financial assistance to complete their studies.

If you would like to join us as a chef this year, please fill out the attached document and return to Frank Williams at fwilliams@susla.edu. For tickets and more information concerning the Gentlemen’s Cooking Classic, please contact the SUS Foundation at 318-670.9681.
