Chefs Wanted for 2013 Great Alaska Seafood Cook Off

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute is looking to crown the next king or queen of Alaska seafood. The institute is hosting the Great Alaska Seafood Cook-Off May 8 in Anchorage and inviting chefs from around the state to enter the competition to compete head-to-head for the honor of representing Alaska this August at the Great American Seafood Cook-Off in New Orleans.

The call for entries begins today and will be collected until April 5. A panel of judges will choose the six winning chefs that will advance to the live competition in May.  Any professional chef is invited to enter the contest.

“Alaska seafood is the highest quality and there are some high-caliber chefs in the state,” said Mike Cerne, ASMI executive director. “We can’t wait to see who will represent Alaska at the Great American Seafood Cook-Off in New Orleans later on in the year.”

During the live competition, the contestants will have one hour to prepare and plate a dish highlighting Alaska seafood. Their work will be judged by a panel of past Great American Seafood Cook-Off contestants and culinary stars from Alaska and beyond.
Find out more about the cook off, including how to enter, at greatalaskaseafoodcookoff.com.

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute is a non-profit partnership of the State of Alaska and the Alaska seafood industry that promotes wild, natural and sustainable Alaska seafood products in the United States and around the world.

Great Alaska Seafood Cook Off Adds Recipe Contest

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute is adding an amateur recipe contest to its celebrated Great Alaska Seafood Cook Off event. The recipe contest winner will receive a prize package that includes a new iPad and will be crowned along with the new king or queen of Alaska seafood at the Great Alaska Seafood Cook Off, May 14 at the Bill Sheffield Alaska Railroad Depot in Anchorage, 6-9 p.m. The top 20 recipe writers will also be invited to the event. Recipes are due May 1 and can be entered at www.greatalaskaseafoodcookoff.com/recipecontest.

“Working with Alaska seafood inspires people to create amazing dishes. I’m really excited about the recipes we’ll get,” said Tyson Fick, Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute communications director. “Wild, natural and sustainable Alaska seafood is hugely popular around the world and this is a great opportunity to celebrate the fishermen, fisheries managers, processors and chefs that are working hard to make it available for people to enjoy today and for generations to come.”

Applications for the professional division of the Great Alaska Seafood Cook Off are due April 1. A committee organized by the institute will select six chefs to compete in the live cooking competition.

“We’ve got a strong field of applicants already, but there is still time for professional chefs in Alaska to submit applications,” Fick said.

Sponsors of the event include the Alaska Railroad, Alaska Airlines, Alaska Grown, the Alaskan Brewery, J.Lohr Vineyards and Winery and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fish Watch. Judges will include chef Jose Souto of Westminster Kingsway College in London, chef Christine Keff from the Flying Fish in Seattle, chef Dan Enos from Oceanaire in Boston, chef Erik Slater from the Resurrection Roadhouse in Seward and Alaskan chef Rob Kinneen of fresh49.com.

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute is a non-profit partnership of the State of Alaska and the Alaska seafood industry that promotes the wild, natural and sustainably managed commercial harvesting of the Alaska seafood industry.
