For four days during the 2012 Olympic Games, chefs from Florida's Gulf Coast will form the "Spirit of the Gulf" and head to London to introduce Team USA to a showcase of food from the Gulf Coast waters.
Among those chefs will be eight of the best chefs from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, who will prepare the freshest seafood the Gulf has to offer for U.S. Olympians, their families and visitors to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Each chef will dish up some of their hometown favorites. Chefs cooking will be Chef John Folse and Chef Michael Sichel of Louisiana, Chef Chris Poplin and Chef Calvin Coleman of Mississippi, Chef Chris Sherrill and Chef Alec Naman of Alabama and Chef Justin Timineri and Chef Paul Stellato of Florida.
