MasterChef Meets Seafood Throwdown
Event to Highlight Importance of our Local Fishermen & Local Seafood
Gloucester, MA – Not only do we step out of downtown Gloucester for this week’s Seafood Throwdown, but we bring in MasterChef! Our old friend and two-time Seafood Throwdown competitor Christian Collins is coming back to judge this week’s event. It just happens he’s a competitor himself, but on Fox’ MasterChef where he’s in the top 4!
This week’s competing teams are from Amelia’s at 78 Thatcher Road in Gloucester who will be represented by Chef and owner Amelia Lopes and her daughter Danielle Vossantos. And just down the backshore at 125 Atlantic Road is the Breakfast Cafe at the Atlantis Ocean Front Inn. Chef Jessica O’Leary will be joined by MaryEllen Gigliotti.
Joining Christian in the judging will be Heather Atwood blogger on "Food for Thought" and columnist/video author for the Gloucester Daily Times, The Eagle-Tribune, and the Newburyport News. Joining her will be Laurie Lufkin of Essex, winner of cooking contests from the Essex Clamfest, Topsfield Fair, Florida, the Food Channel and Family Circle Magazine and back. Emcees will again be Peter van Ness of "gimmesound.com, The New Music Pipeline" and Joey Ciaramitaro from "GoodMorningGloucester My View of Life on the Docks" blog. All we are missing is Gordon Ramsey!
