Lobster Roll Rumble – Maine Results

The Camden Harbour Inn recently participated in the Lobster Roll Rumble in NYC. Executive Chef Geoffroy Deconinck (nominated for Food & Wine's "People's Best New Chef Award 2011) developed an inventive, but true to Maine tradition, simple recipe that allowed the lobster to be the focal point of the Inn’s entry. He chose lobster from Crate to Plate to ensure the freshest catch.

Prestigious judges, including Martha Stewart and Kyle Maclachlan sampled 18 entries. Camden Harbor Inn placed second with 58 of 60 points. The third place entry had a total 40 points. Crate to Plate’s lobster was voted best tasting lobster.

We are also glad that the judges support our belief that lobster pulled from the waters of Midcoast Maine are the best; Lobster served at the peak of freshness yields the best results; Recipes that are interesting but that allow the quality and freshness of the meat to shine are true to food harvested at their peak from prime sources.

We are proud to have partnered with Camden Harbor Inn and Chef Geoffrey at this event. We encourage you to stop at Natalie’s the Inn’s restaurant and sample a winning lobster roll and lobster harvested the same day by Crate to Plate.
