Join us on Tuesday, May 1 as local high school students compete for the best monkfish recipe in this year’s Rhode Island Seafood Cook-off at the Chariho Area Career & Technical Center from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Student teams from the Chariho Area Career & Technical Center, the Cranston Career & Technical Center, the Regional Career & Technical Center at Coventry High School, the Warwick Area Career & Technical Center, Westerly High School, and the William M. Davies, Jr. Career & Technical High School will be serving up their own original recipes for locally caught monkfish.

The audience will vote for their favorite dish, and the winning team will have their recipe featured at Trio Restaurant, 15 Kingstown Road, Narragansett, and be treated to lunch, courtesy of the Newport Restaurant Group.

“We are so proud to support the next generation of talented chefs,” said Casey Riley, chief operating officer, Newport Restaurant Group. “Rhode Island is known for our great seafood and wonderful cuisine and we look forward to featuring the winning team’s recipe at Trio restaurant.”

The monkfish for this event is provided by Sea Fresh USA of North Kingstown.

Today the public has a chance to taste some new recipes for monkfish that they can try at home,” said Sara Reilly, the culinary instructor of the Chariho Area Career & Technical Center.
