Chefs for Fishermen


About 20 top local chefs recently gathered in Grand Isle to treat fishermen and local residents to a funfilled day packed with savory cuisine, live entertainment and lots of encouragement. Organized by chef Matt Murphy of the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans, the outpouring of support from New Orleans chefs and volunteers overjoyed Grand Isle residents, who have been tremendously affected by the oil spill in the Gulf. Community Coffee offered free bags of coffee and members of the New Orleans Jesters soccer team passed out free game tickets.
