We have confirmation that Chef Johanna from Cafe Lachine in Nags Head will be returning this year to prepare a dish for this year’s cookoff as well as Chef Mike from Ocean Boulevard! Christian Benedi will also be back as our MC (he made the event a lot of fun last year)! That makes two great Shrimp dishes so far, with more to come!
The 9th annual Shrimp CookOff is slated to be held at Ocean Boulevard Bistro & Martini Bar in Kitty Hawk, NC – from 12:00 noon until 3:00pm on Sunday November 4th. This casual, fun competition has been a huge success since 2010, and we look forward to an excellent ninth annual event. We will have 8-10 competing chefs from around the Outer Banks, cooking fresh, local shrimp in their favorite style of preparation. A live MC will be keeping up with announcements and door prizes and a silent auction will also be held on the second floor of Ocean Boulevard, with a People’s Choice Ballot. The bar will be open serving Beer & Wine specials along with your favorite beverage. The cost per person is $25 at the door, and tickets can be bought in advance at Ocean Boulevard or Outer Banks Veterinary Hospital this fall. This year’s event is sponsored by the Nags Head Dolphin Watch, Kitty Hawk Kites, Outer Banks Veterinary Hospital, Atlantic Dentistry, Joe Lamb Jr. & Associates, Access Design, and Max Radio. Keep up with this blog to see who’s competing, find out about silent auctions, connect to facebook and see who’s coming, etc!)
