Shanna O’Hea, co-owner of the Kennebunk Inn and Academe Restaurant, recently competed in Harvest on the Harbor’s Lobster Chef of the Year contest in Portland. O’Hea was selected as a finalist by the Maine Lobster Promotional Council for her Lobster Lo’Maine dish. Though O’Hea did not win the title, she was awarded $500. She prepared some 200 sample sized portions for the events’ attendees, as well as four plate-size entrees for judges and photographers. O’Hea, the only female competitor this year, competed alongside three other Maine chefs. O’Hea has been co-owner of the inn and restaurant with her husband, Brian O’Hea, for 10 years. Chris Long of Natalie’s in Camden won first prize with his dish butter poached Maine lobster.
