MSC Launches Recipe Of The Year Competition


UK - The Marnie Stewardship Council (MSC) has launched a competition to find the best certified sustainable seafood recipe in the UK. Thousands of chefs in certified restaurants across the UK serve sustainable seafood on a daily basis, and now the gauntlet has been thrown down to show the world just how good they are.

Hannah Arcaro, UK Foodservice Manager for the MSC says: With over 120 fisheries across the world now certified, we know that theres a wealth of delicious MSC recipes being cooked up in kitchens across the country and we want to know about them!"

Were looking for an exciting and inspirational dish that tastes delicious. The winning recipe will be one that can be re-created by an experienced home cook in under an hour and use ingredients that are readily available to UK shoppers."

"That will mean the recipe can help to promote sustainably sourced seafood when dining out and at home."

Judging and prizes

The judges to be announced nearer the final will choose a shortlist of three entries to compete in a cook-off and tasting at the MSCs UK Commercial meeting in November 2011 with the winner announced on the day. Prizes include a trip for two to the Shetland Islands shellfish fishery - currently going through MSC assessment.

How to enter

To enter you must work at an MSC certified restaurant in the UK.

Once you have come up with your recipe, fill out the application form and submit, with a photo of your entry, to by 14 October 2011.
