Every year, local high school culinary student teams are invited to serve up their own original recipes for locally caught seafood that are judged by event participants, which is open to the public.
Winning teams have had their recipe featured at restaurants throughout the Ocean State, courtesy of the Newport Restaurant Group.
“Supporting the culinary arts and cooking skill development while celebrating food resourced from our beautiful waters is an honor for all of us…We look forward to showcasing the winning team’s delicious recipe for our guests!” said Kevin DiLibero, Culinary Arts Director, Newport Restaurant Group.
Event Sponsors: Rhode Island Sea Grant, Warwick Area Career & Technical Center, the Cooperative Extension Food Safety Education Program in the URI Department of Fisheries, Animal and Veterinary Sciences, the URI Graduate School of Oceanography, Newport Restaurant Group, the Rhode Island Hospitality Association, and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management.
Due to social distancing and reduced crowd measures, we will not be holding our regularly scheduled event.
