For the NOLA Hot Sauce & Gourmet Food Show I had setup a rematch between our Feast Your Eyes on This Spicy Cooking Challenge finalists. It would pit the winner, Clement Bourg from Cajun Heat versus runner-up
Johnny McLaughlin from Heartbreaking Dawns. It would be a traditional Louisiana favorite, Shrimp and Grits. They would be supplied with shrimp and instant grits, along with the cooking materials. They were to shop for any other ingredients they wished to add to their dish. Everything was going as planned, or so it seemed.
With judge, reviewer and now Louisiana resident Firehead Thomas in the house, I thought it would be great to let him do the play by play for us. Thomas had done his research and both of us, as well as the audience watching were not prepared for what would ultimately unfold.
