NEW ORLEANS ACCLAIMED SEAFOOD CHEF ASKED BY NAVY TO PREPARE LOCALLY INSPIRED MEAL FOR THE CREW OF THE SEATTLE-BASED USS LOUISIANA

(September, 2012)  NEW ORLEANS, LA - New Orleans' acclaimed Seafood Chef, Tenney Flynn, Executive Chef and Co-Owner of GW Fins, has been asked to bring his culinary abilities and local seafood to cook for the crew of the Seattle-based USS Louisiana.


This lunchtime celebration will take place on Friday, September 28th.  Prior to the lunch, Chef Flynn will lead a two day "Training Evolution" with the culinary crew of the USS Louisiana.  He will be teaching the crew how to prepare a Louisiana inspired meal, including Louisiana Barbeque Shrimp, fabulously prepared Gulf finfish (whichever variety is freshest at that moment), GW Fins' signature Sweet Potatoes with Vanilla and Bananas, Louisiana rice, and White Chocolate and Caramel Bread Pudding.

"It's an honor to have been asked by the New Orleans Navy League to not only cook for the crew of the USS Louisiana, but to provide them with a true New Orleans culinary experience," states Chef Tenney Flynn. "It's a great opportunity to bring the flavor of Louisiana to these brave service people aboard the vessel named for our state," concludes Flynn.        

Following the two day training, Chef Flynn will serve 300 military aboard the USS Louisiana this fabulous New Orleans meal.
