The Vineyard is getting set for its own Seafood Throwdown to take place at the West Tisbury Farmers’ Market this Saturday, August 11, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The competition is basic in its demands: two chefs are let loose on the farmers’ market, able to use anything they find on the premises, with one required ingredient to be revealed at the time of the competition. They create a meal on the spot and then at 11:30 the judges taste the results and declare the winner.
This year’s contestants are Teddy Diggs from the Home Port in Menemsha and Jo Maxwell from Chesca’s in Edgartown. The judges are Ben deForest, Susie Middleton and Robert Lionette.
