Over on The Other Cape

Have you checked out The Other Cape?

It’s a new online magazine and resource that highlights all that is awesome about our own Cape Ann. There’s a lot to highlight: the incredible places, food, events and people on Cape Ann mean the stories on The Other Cape will keep coming.

And speaking of incredible people, one of our own, Lila DeLuca of Rockport, is featured in the latest story on The Other Cape about competing on the cooking show MasterChef Junior. Though she’s just in 5th grade, Lila has managed to become a pro at cooking.

We were especially thrilled that she cited the Seafood Throwdown at Harvestfest as one of her inspirations. It’s exciting to realize the ways in which Harvestfest and other community events can serve to educate and motivate the Rockport’s next generation.

Check out the story and the rest of the magazine HERE…

We’re looking forward to watching the rest of the season of MasterChef Junior (you can watch episodes HERE ) and to cheering Lila on!
