Lobster Chef of the Year: Mackenzie Arrington

The Press Herald has a report on yesterday’s Lobster Chef of the Year competition at Harvest on the Harbor.

“I think the right person won,” said Thomas, a fisherman who has been a regular at the competition over the years. “That was the best use of lobster I’ve seen in a long time.”

Arrington, who is 22 and graduated from the Culinary Institute of America last week, won the title and $1,000 by serving up roasted Maine lobster tail on braised cabbage with corn bread. He is the son of last year’s winner, Margaret McLellan.
