Cook Off! Competition
A prize will be awarded to the "Best Dish"
Each crew shall prepare and present one dish only enough for 20 people to try. The dish shall be cooked by the crew on board their boat from scratch. “Scratch” is defined as starting with basic ingredients. There is no limitation for the origin of the ingredients. Complete commercial “just add meat/water/milk etc.” mixes are not permitted.
Crews are to prepare and cook dishes in as sanitary a manner as possible. At the discretion of the head judge, the crew may be required to taste their dishes before turning it in for judging.
Each boat is required to prepare a minimum of 20 servings of their dish. The skipper of each crew will be invited to try each dish. Dishes will be evaluated by the skipper of each crew as well as the Organizing Committee and will be judged considering taste, appearance, presentation and originality. Each skipper may cast up to 3 votes. Votes may be cast to different dishes or to the same dish (but not on a crew’s own dish). The dish that collects the most votes will be the winner.
