Golden Q VIP Room Experience

The Louisiana Food Prize proudly brings you the Golden Q VIP Room Experience. Join us in the VIP Room from 12:00pm to 2:00pm as local celebrity chefs battle for the Golden Cleaver with their own unique twists on traditional barbecue. Your VIP ticket gives you entrance to this exclusive competition within a competition where you will sample each chef’s creation, perfectly paired with one of the featured craft beers, then help award one talented chef with the inaugural Golden Cleaver.

This year’s competing chefs include 2018 Golden Fork Champion Jacob Mouser (Frank’s Pizza Napoletana), 2017 Golden Fork Champion Eleazar Mondragon (Ki’ Mexico), Hardette Harris (Us Up North), and Matt Conover (Bohemian BBQ).
