Let me tell you, the LaHouse never smelled better.

Nine teams of 4-Hers from around the state faced off Wednesday in the Next 4-H Food Star competition at LSU.  Crawfish pie, seafood-stuffed crepes, grilled redfish, shrimp and grits, and stuffed white perch were among the dishes served to a very lucky panel of judges.

The winning team will represent Louisiana at the Great American Seafood Cookoff, 4-H Edition in New Orleans.

Good luck, teams!
