The Cooks for Books event was a blast and NBC 17 and I won! I served this coleslaw which I named after “Claude” from Mike Artell’s Three Little Cajun Pigs children’s book with my signature dish Chicken and Sausage Gumbo! The very talented author generously signed a book that was later dedicated it to all of the children who will benefit from the literacy program provided by the Garner Education Foundation! What a great night! Thanks so my friend, Sharon Delaney, for helping out!
