2018 Best International Dish
Jewel of India: Pakora
This perfectly yellowed and crispy snack had a warm and soft inside. The bold curry flavor came out as soon as the judges took a bite. It made them feel as though they were on a street in India taking in the authentic atmosphere.
Inland Hospital: Shish Kabob with Lamb
Grilled to perfection! The vegetables had a snap and the lamb was juicy with just the right amount of Greek flavorings. The judges called it “What summer should taste like”.
2018 Best Entrée –Parsonage House
Summer Risotto with lemon garlic shrimp
The risotto was cooked perfectly! The lemon garlic flavor made the dish light and refreshing on a hot and humid summer day. The shrimp really made a perfect finish to the dish.
2018 Best Salad- MaineGeneral Health
Quinoa and 3 Berry Salad with Local Chevre
The berries gave the dish a pop of color and flavor. The locally sourced chevre incorporated a smooth texture with the quinoa and added a bit of creaminess. The judges were impressed with the level of freshness and effort was made to create a locally made salad.
2018 Best Dessert – Amici’s Cucina
Lemon Shortbread Tart with Maine Blueberries, Lemon Zest and Whipped Cream
A buttery tart held a flawlessness whipped lemon topping. The Maine blueberries and slight zest created the aroma of Maine all in one bit. The judges couldn’t get enough and wanted more after the last bite.
