Seafood Throwdown

 The Seafood Throwdown is a competition where two local chefs engage in a culinary battle of skill and creativity with the secret local seafood ingredient. This year, we are pleased to have chef Kerry Altiero of Cafe Miranda in Rockland  and sous chef William Zbylot of the SlipWay Restaurant in Thomaston competing. Each chef will bring their favorite cooking vessels/utensils, presentation plates and three of their favorite ingredients. At the Common Ground Fair they will discover the secret seafood ingredient, be given $25 and 15 minutes to use the farmers market as their pantry, and then an hour to prepare, cook and plate their dish for three judges.

Our judges, representing fishing villages from around the coast of Maine, will be Kim Libby- Fisherman's Wife (Port Clyde); Aaron Dority- Penobscot East Resource Center (Stonington); and Will Bleakley - DownEast Magazine  (Rockland). Tastes of the chefs dishes will be available on a limited basis.

Come watch the chefs from your favorite restaurants compete in preparing sustainable, locally-caught seafood. Support your local fishermen and fishing communities by buying local seafood!
