In a little place called Halifax, Nova Scotia

Posted by Tall Ships America on July 22, 2012

Six ship cooks faced off against each other yesterday afternoon. In an Iron Chef-type competition, they were given 40 minutes to create a meal from the surprise contents of the little blue blox. Celebrity chef Chuck Hughes was on hand to judge the plates and Taste of Nova Scotia generously donated the ingredients and prizes. There were three teams of two – Nick (Eagle) and Kori (Unicorn), Kari (Lynx) and Pat (Peacemaker), and Sean (Gazela) and Jo (Amistad).  The ingredients they had to cook with were all local specialites, lobster, scallops, beer and bacon.  Everyone had the same items but no two dishes were alike. Ultimately, the winners were Nick and Kori who made stuffed scallops with lobster and bacon in a maple blueberry batter.

The winners of the cook off – Nick from EAGLE and Kori from UNICORN
