NEW ORLEANS -- It brings all of America's best cuisine together in one place. This weekend the FoodFest took over the French Market.

The powdered sugar was flying as New Orleans and Jefferson Parish firefighters competed in the beignet eating contest.

This year's winner, Bryan Schindler with the Jefferson Parish Fire Department, finished off 10 beignets in about a minute and a half.

It used to be known as the Road Food Festival. FoodFest is now in its fifth year. It brings cooks from all over the country together to serve up their best dishes.
