Last year Julie Geary claimed the title from four-time winner, previously undefeated Missy Hart of Sugar Magnolias in an extraordinarily close contest, full of mouthwatering anticipation and suspense. See the video that Joey made of that throwdown here:
Below is a quick press release from Throwdown master organizer, Sandy Farrell.
Our “Hotter Than July!” rematch pits Missy Hart’s Team Sugar Magnolia with Lydia Sands and Santos Carvalho against Julie Geary’s Team from Classic Cooks. Watch closely as both of these teams bring years of experience to the table. Grant writer, organic farmer at Beacon Street Farm, and head of the Backyard Growers Program, Lara Lepionka will be judging the event with her critical eye. Steve Parkes, the “Fillet King” will lead a demonstration showing how to fillet a whole fish and break down the process so that you can feel confident in the kitchen. Join emcee Peter Van Ness of gimmesound.com this Thursday, July 26 at the Cape Ann Farmer’s Market. This is our second year at Stage Fort Park where the parking is always free on Market afternoons from 3pm on. The SeaFood Throwdown starts at 4pm.
Another judge or two will be announced soon. Hope to see you there!
