Gould Nets Golden Buoy

According to a report from the Associated Press, chef Chris Gould from Boston was the winner of the Shucks Maine Lobster World Series.

The winner of the lobster world series championship in Maine is the chef who created a butter-basted lobster with corn and sweet miso puree, served with roasted fingerling potatoes, cinnamon-and-hay smoked carrots and piquillo pepper sauce.

Chris Gould of Uni Sashimi Restaurant in Boston accepted his golden lobster buoy — and $5,000 — during a ceremony at Portland City Hall on Wednesday.

Press Herald food writer Meredith Goad was on the scene live tweeting and twitpicing the competition. She reports that Gould plans to opening a Portland restaurant in Spring 2013, and her article in Thursday’s paper provides further detail on the competition and the upcoming restaurant.

Gould is a native of Bethel, but until last week he worked for renowned chef Ken Oringer at Uni Sashimi Bar in Boston. He said he plans to open his own restaurant in Portland next spring that will feature “internationally inspired small plates.”
