These days, it’s tough to know which fish and shellfish are fresh, wholesome and eco-friendly. In this exciting workshop, we’ll prepare spectacular seafood dishes from around the world that you’ll love making at home. We’ll talk about the importance of buying seafood from sustainable sources, and provide recommendations on which seafood to buy (or avoid) in your area. After defining the meaning of “sustainable seafood,” we’ll share some thoughts about how we can each become “stewards” of our oceans.
