Fish Stock/Seafood Throwdown
Fish Stock is the portion of the Boston Local Food Festival that highlights the fisher folk and the seafood that are local to New England. Sponsored by Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA), The Seafood Throwdown is the main event of Fish Stock! Two chefs engage in a culinary battle of skill and creativity with the secret seafood ingredient. Can you guess the secret seafood?
Stay tuned. 2014 Schedule is coming soon!
The Boston Local Food Festival Seafood Throwdown is hosted by the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA). The Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance works with coastal communities to protect our marine environment, strengthen local leadership, and give voice to independent, community based fishermen. NAMA advocates for policies that advance social, economic, and environmental justice throughout the entire seafood value chain. Also, NAMA piloted the Seafood Throwdown event, which is an educational and community driven activity that promotes the ecological and economic benefits of locally caught seafood.
Chefs are allowed to bring three of their favorite ingredients, and once they discover the secret seafood they must use, they got $25 and 15 minutes to shop the Boston Local Food Festival’s vendors for ingredients. After their shopping spree, they have one hour to cook and present their entry for the judge’s consideration.
