With the help of Liz Mangham at Southern Strategy Group, Chef Philippe Parola and other Chefs cooked and served a Silverfin (aka Asian Carp) Wine Dinner hosted by the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association for the Louisiana Natural Resources Committee in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in April. The entire menu included Asian Carp dishes and was well received. Representative Stuart Bishop, Chairman of the Committee in attendance, stated “It was the best dinner they have ever had at their committee meetings.”  Don Briggs, President of the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association, said “This Asian Carp is so delicious, we need to call it the new Louisiana Jewel Fish.
