Thursday, July 15, 2010 – 3:00pm – 5:00pm
Rogers Street, Gloucester, Massachusetts
Seafood Throwdowns were born at the Cape Ann Farmers Market two summers ago. This year, Seafood Throwdowns are back at the Farmers Market’s new location on Rogers Street.
Seafood Throwdown season returns to Gloucester this Thursday, July 15 starting at 4 p.m. at the Cape Ann Farmers’ Market new location on Rogers St. The reigning queen of the Throwdowns, Missy Hart and her Team Sugar Magnolias will once again defend her Throwdown title against Ryan Cox’s team from the Farm Bar and Grille in Essex. While new to the Seafood Throwdown, Ryan’s team is no stranger to competition and innovation as seen in their most recent event “The Farm at Sea” which was held on a boat.
Seafood Throwdowns are an opportunity learn more about our local seafood, local fishing fleet and fisheries related issues affecting our ocean, fishing economies and coastal food systems. Chefs Hart and Cox will educate and entertain you with their skills as they show how to work with whole, fresh, and very local seafood. Chefs can bring three of their favorite ingredients and once they discover the secret seafood they will be using, they get $25 and 15 minutes to shop the Farmers’ Market for ingredients. After their shopping spree, they have one hour to cook and present their entry for the judge’s consideration. This is a free event, open
to the public. Tastings will be available for farmer’s market shoppers.
The event is a collaboration between the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, Cape Ann Farmers Market, Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Association and the Cape Ann Fresh Catch Community Supported Fishery (CSF). It promises to be a fun, educational and community-driven activity designed to link the importance of locally caught seafood to the health and resilience of our ocean.
See you there!
