Kitchen in the Market to host 'Seafood Throwdown' competition
Two of the top seafood chefs in the city will be going head to head in a culinary battle to the finish. Both chefs are relatively new to their head toque positions. Jamie Malone is still only into her first (official) year as chef de cuisine at Tim McKee's Sea Change in the Guthrie Theater. And chef Robert Wohlfeil only recently took over the kitchen at Oceanaire when it made the move to its new Nicollet Mall space. Yet both have already earned considerable praise. Both chefs and their restaurants have also committed to the Minnesota Zoo's Fish Smart program, pledging to serve only sustainable seafood.
The Throwdown is going down at 6:30 on Monday, February 27, at Kitchen in the Market inside the Midtown Global Market. Stephanie March, food editor for Mpls/St. Paul magazine and co-host of 107.1 My Talk's Weekly Dish program, will act as emcee. I will be representing the Hot Dish by sitting in judgement and likely hogging the microphone with snappy opinions.
