Westbrook Chef Knows Lobster

Margaret McLellan, the corporate chef for Westbrook-based Native Maine Produce, has been named the Maine Lobster Chef of the Year.

McLellan won yesterday's Blaine House cookoff with a dish described by the Kennebec Journal as "Maine Lobster purse with wild Maine compliments (sic) and pea shoot salad." And her ingredients consisted of Aroostook flour; native sea salt; Crown O' Maine carrots; Maine maple syrup; lobster from Shucks Maine Lobster (a co-sponsor of the event and another employer of McLellan); and Maine-farmed eggs, milk, butter, tarragon, and goat cheese.

Margaret is an amazing chef! I was one of the 75 people in attendance and loved her dish.
