Cambridge, MD (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
From crab feasts and crabbing lessons to even a crab cake eating contest, Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort is all about Maryland’s state crustacean this August. Join the luxury waterfront resort for its second annual Crab Week, August 14 - 28, 2011, for an array of fun and flavorful crab-themed activities. Guests also have the chance to meet celebrated chef and restaurateur Bryan Voltaggio and attend his special five-course crab tasting dinner.
“Crab week was such an enormous success last year, that we’re excited to bring it back for two full weeks this summer, with even more activities,” said Ted Kanatas, general manager of Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort.
Activities at the Cambridge, Maryland hotel and resort during Crab Week include a crab cake eating contest and a crab cook-off contest. Crab-inspired activities for kids include crab cookie making, crab-walk contests, and crabby tattoos. Guests can take part in a special Saturday night feast at J.M. Clayton Company, the world’s oldest crab house.
Chef Voltaggio, a recent finalist on Bravo’s Top Chef, will meet and greet guests on Saturday, August 27, and will serve as a celebrity judge of a crab “Iron Chef Competition.” That evening, guests can join Chef Voltaggio for an exclusive five-course crab tasting dinner.
Throughout the celebration, guests can “sink their claws” into bushels of crab-infused dishes. The four-diamond resort’s onsite seafood restaurant Blue Point Provision Company will offer numerous special dishes as well as local craft beer specials. Guests can learn how to prepare favorite crab dishes at cooking demonstrations conducted by the resort’s team of chefs. At wine and spirit seminars, attendees will taste and learn which pairings work best with crab.
