Rosarito Beach Seafood Competition to Sizzle on July 13

·   Mexico’s Rosarito Beach Hotel to Host Annual Seafood Fair

Rosarito Beach, Baja California – The 20th Annual Fish, Seafood and Tropical Drinks Fair and Competition (La Feria del Pescado, el Marisco y la Bebida Tropical), is shaping up to become Baja California’s live version of “Iron Chef,” the popular food television program.

Hosted by the Rosarito Beach Hotel and held in their oceanfront gardens, it promises to be a fun-filled and exciting event for the whole family, all part of the annual International Seafood Fair.

“This is the perfect Rosarito event, combining sun, sea and great seafood,” said Rosarito Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau President Laura Wong. “That’s why it’s so popular every year.”

Admission is free and food samples start at only US$2.00; the competition will take place on Sunday, July 13, from 1 pm to 6 pm. Parking is free with validation and everyone is welcome.

The best restaurants in the region will feature their top chefs, who will be competing to win first place for the best seafood/shellfish dish. This year’s competition will allow the contestants to bring their own ingredients rather than the organizers of the event supplying them with a “surprise” list of ingredients to cook from.

This will definitely “heat up” the competition, as each chef will be an expert in preparing his or her own dish.

The first place dish will be judged for creativity, preparation and timing, taste, and presentation, all combining to determine who will be the “Iron Chef” of Rosarito Beach. Those who love to cook will enjoy this exciting competition that will pit chef against chef in a “cook-off” against the clock, or “Kamikaze Cooking” at its best.

In addition to the competition there will be a folkloric dance presentation with Caribbean dances and live music.
