Chefs committed to sustainability competed last night [April 19] at the National Museum of Bermuda to see who has the tastiest solution to the problem of invasive lionfish at the ‘Eat Lionfish Chefs Throwdown’ event at the Commissioner’s House in Dockyard.
Organized by 11th Hour Racing, the Chefs’ Throwdown brought together all of the teams competing in the 35th America’s Cup around an important environmental issue, promoting Bermuda’s position as a leader in sustainable fishing practices.
Timed to coincide with Earth Week, each of the six nations participating in the competition for the oldest trophy in international sport was represented by a top chef vying to create the best lionfish dish in the Throwdown.
Judges of the contest were the skippers and representatives of the America’s Cup teams, and Bermuda College Culinary Arts students paired with America’s Cup celebrity chefs.
