Inn at Perry Cabin wins Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum oyster stew competition

Inn at Perry Cabin General Manager Stephanie Mehail, left, and Executive Sous Chef Caleb Taylor of the Inn’s Sherwood’s Landing Restaurant, right, recently accepted a plaque from the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) for winning the oyster stew competition at CBMM’s 2012 OysterFest.

Six restaurants competed, with more than 300 participants taking part in blind taste tests and voting by ballot for their favorite stew. Sherwood’s Landing’s oyster stew was served as stew ‘A’ in the tastings. OysterFest participants also picked St. Michaels Harbour Inn’s Harbour Lights oyster stew (stew ‘E’) as second, with third place going to Gourmet by the Bay (stew ‘B’). All restaurants are located in St. Michaels, MD.

The next OysterFest is scheduled for November 2, 2013 at CBMM’s waterfront campus in St. Michaels, MD. More info at
