A Maine native edged out chefs from around the globe last week to win the Shucks Maine Lobster Chef World Series.

Chef Chris Gould, the champion, defeated chefs from Maine as well as such places as Germany and Hong Kong to win the $5,000 prize and Shucks’ “Golden Buoy” trophy, which was presented by Portland Mayor Michael Brennan at City Hall, according to the Portland Press Herald.

Gould is a native of Bethel, but until last week he worked for renowned chef Ken Oringer at Uni Sashimi Bar in Boston. He said he plans to open his own restaurant in Portland next spring that will feature “internationally inspired small plates.”
