Witness our Seafood Throwdown at its finest and bring a friend to see if you can name the Mystery Fish? The chefs of Harvest Kitchen and Island House Jamaican Fusion will be preparing their dishes to a panel of judges: Jim Nellis of RI Food Fights, Maureen Pothier of Johnson & Wales, Jonathan Cambra of Roger Williams University, in hopes to get a perfect score. The dishes will be judged by 4 categories- the Use of the Whole Animal (10pts), the Taste factor (10pts), the Presentation (5pts), and the Originality (5pts). Once the judges have tasted the dishes you will be able to taste and judge for yourself. So come early and get your tasting ticket and help us create a demand in your local market for this amazing species.

WPRI The Rhode Show's Brendan Kirby will give you a play by play of all the action, along with a variety of speakers from your community like, Eating with the Ecosystem, RI Seagrant, NAMA, Get out of the Boat Campaign and your local judges. This is a fun educational experience for everyone, so come down and join FarmFresh RI and NAMA for this Grand Kickoff Seafood Throwdown Event!
