Restaurant's pumpkin contest benefits food pantry

Two contests will be hosted by a local restaurant next week, one of which will benefit Cape Ann’s food pantry.

Next Tuesday, Oct. 29, Alchemy Bistro chef and defending throw-down champion Scott Jensen will challenge chef Stacy Cogswell of Regal Beagle in Brookline to a throw down with the season’s No. 1 staple: the pumpkin.

While the chefs battle it out in the kitchen to see who can make pumpkin taste the best, there will also be a contest to see who can make it look the best.

The restaurants are inviting artists and non-artists alike to enter their carved pumpkins in a contest, and for each pumpkin entered Alchemy will donate $5 to The Open Door, which operates Cape Ann’s food pantry.

At the challenge, for $25 every guest will receive a signature challenge cocktail made with Gloucester’s own Ryan & Wood spirits, a pumpkin dish from each chef, and the opportunity to cast their vote for the winner of both contests.

Plus, the best looking pumpkin will earn its maker a $100 gift certificate with second place receiving $50.

Contestants in the pumpkin carving challenge do not need to attend the event itself to win, they simply need to bring their carved pumpkin to Alchemy, 3 Duncan St., anytime between now and Tuesday on 7 p.m.
