Eating With The Ecosystem Cook a Fish, Give a Fish – Online Seafood Cooking Class

January 18, 2022 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

Learn to cook restaurant quality local seafood dishes along side some of the finest chefs from Rhode Island to Long Island. In this unique online cooking class, fisheries experts will teach you everything you want to know about the fish, the fishermen and the many benefits of choosing local seafood while expert chefs teach you how to turn fresh fish straight from the sea into delicious meals you can share with your friends and family! All proceeds go towards providing local seafood for families in need. 

The January 18th event will be led by Chef David Standridge, executive chef of The Shipwright’s Daughter in Mystic, CT. Chef David will be teaching guest how to prepare Monkfish! Don’t be deterred by Monkfish’s somewhat frightful appearance, what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in taste and texture. Sometimes referred to as “poor man’s lobster”, Monkfish is both sweet in flavor and meaty in texture (like a lobster tail) lending itself well to a wide variety of cooking techniques and flavor profiles. Take this class and let chef David guide you through turning this “ugly duckling” into a “beautiful swan” of a dish!
