Maine Lobster Chef of the Year Competition is an event where four of Maine’s best chefs demonstrate their unique recipes, using lobster as the main ingredient.

This lunchtime affair delights even the most discerning of lobster aficionados! Join host Tom Martin, owner and captain of Lucky Catch Lobster Cruises, while four Maine chefs prepare succulent lobster dishes as they compete for the title of Maine Lobster Chef of the Year. Presented by the Maine Lobster Promotion Council, this favorite annual event will surely satisfy your crustacean cravings! Wines expertly paired by Constellation Brands will be presented along with a spectacular blueberry dessert provided by Captain Sam’s Ice Cream. At the conclusion of the competition, while the votes are tallied, guests will enjoy savoring a cup of Portland’s locally roasted Coffee by Design; the perfect way to recharge your batteries and ensure that your Harvest experience lasts long after the 2012 Lobster Chef of the Year is announced!

The event starts with a cup of lobster bisque and ends with a dessert demonstration and tasting. The attire is business casual, so bring your appetite for lobster and listen to some great music while you learn to cook like Maine’s best chefs.
