Hancock Gourmet Lobster Introduces New Chowder
Cundy's Harbor, ME – June 16, 2010 – Corn chowder is a New England specialty; Maine is famous for its deliciously sweet lobster; and Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company has ten years of experience creating gourmet specialties. When these three powerhouses come together, the results are guaranteed to be delicious.
With the introduction of its Linekin Bay Lobster Corn Chowder, Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company has created a delicious blend of tender Maine lobster and sweet yellow corn that is getting the attention of the specialty food industry.
It has already been nominated for one of the specialty food industry's most prestigious awards. It was selected from a field of 1500 entries as a finalist for a sofiTM Award (Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation) by the National Association of the Specialty Food Trade. The winner of the "Outstanding Soup, Stew, Bean or Chili" category will be announced in late June at the International Fancy Food Show in New York.
The Linekin Bay Lobster Corn Chowder joins the ranks of Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co.'s other esteemed products, including its Cundy's Harbor Lobster Stew, Pemaquid Point Lobster Pot Pies and Port Clyde Lobster Mac & Cheese.
"We wanted to make a chowder that was just a little different," said founder and president Cal Hancock. "By combining the lobster and corn it resulted in an incredibly rich and satisfying soup and we hope another Gold winner at the show."
In keeping with Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company's high standards, the Linekin Bay Lobster Corn Chowder is made with the finest ingredients, including Maine lobster claw and knuckle meat, sweet yellow corn, locally-sourced dairy products and a creamy, perfectly-seasoned lobster stock. Great with crusty bread and garnished with a bit of bacon, it's just the thing for a chilly evening or relaxing Sunday brunch. Available for retail and foodservice.
