Chefs wanted for Great Alaska Seafood Cook Off

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute has invited chefs from around the state to compete in the Great Alaska Seafood Cook-Off May 8 in Anchorage. Participants will compete for the honor of representing Alaska this August at the Great American Seafood Cook-Off in New Orleans. Any professional chef is invited to enter the contest.

The call for entries 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.

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
