Local restaurants and caterers compete in second annual Shrimp Tasting Festival

The second annual Shrimp Tasting Festival took place Saturday at Point Cadet Plaza in Biloxi to celebrate the shrimping industry on the Coast.

Local chefs cooked up samples of shrimp appetizers and entrees to find out who had the best recipe. The event also featured an RV, boat, and Mustang show.

Dawn Mattina, vice president of Clear Vision Entertainment, says their company loves putting on different events on the Coast, but her favorite ones are when there is food tasting involved for others to enjoy.  “I think they are going to enjoy the different restaurants so they know where they want to go. Maybe they haven’t tried them. I just actually had some people from my hometown, which is in Kansas, show up. They were passing through and saw it on TV and Facebook that I was here. I haven’t seen them in over 20 years. So, they had a really good time.”
