Chef Bonnie Breaux started cooking for her children. That love for creating something new and excited started her on a journey to become a chef.
"They were really good about it," Chef Breaux said. "They were like little guinea pigs--they either loved it or they didn't love it and that's how I learned."
It was not always part of the plan, but something that was well worth it in the end.
Breaux said she eventually started up a catering business and then moved to running her own restaurants. She finally landed back in Louisiana and at The St. John Restaurant in St. Martinville.
"This is where it is," Chef Breaux said. "We have the freshest seafood ever. For me, as a chef, it's important for me to use that fresh product in every dish I create."
Only in the game for 12 years, Chef Breaux has proven herself worthy of the craft. She snagged the title of Louisiana Seafood Queen at the Louisiana Seafood Cook-off at the Cajundome.
"I didn't expect to get chosen," Breaux started. "When I was chosen...I thought "this is real." When I won....that wasn't expected at all."
Saturday, Chef Breaux will mix, chop, and season her way to another title when she competes against a dozen others at the Great American Seafood Cook-off in New Orleans.
"I'm going to go with the same attitude that I had," Breaux said. "I'm going to give 100 percent and do the best that I can and represent the people and hopefully come out with a win. If not, I'm good with that as well."
Breaux said she is just thankful to be recognized for her work alongside other great chefs in Louisiana and the Nation.
