The audience at Portland’s Harvest on The Harbor



Chef Mackenzie Arrington,

Maine Lobster Chef of the Year.


Harvest on the Harbor, presented by the Greater Portland Convention & Visitors Bureau, brings nationally recognized chefs using Maine products and blends them with our own award winning local chefs in celebrating Maine as a culinary travel destination.


Chef Mackenzie Arrington, a recent graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, earned the title of Maine Lobster Chef of the Year on Friday with his dish of Roasted Lobster Tail on Braised Cabbage and Cornbread. Two hundred lucky attendees tasted dishes prepared by three chef competitors, watched each chef demonstrate their recipe, and then voted on their favorite. At the competition, Mackenzie was awarded $1,000 in prize money and a limited edition Maine Lobster jacket.
