Free Virtual Workshop: Sustainable Soups from the Sea
Virtual Workshop: Sustainable Soups from the Sea
with Chef Craig Fear
Author, Food Writer & "Fearless Eating" Blogger
Thursday, March 24th, 2022 • 7pm – 8pm
In recent decades, Americans' knowledge and taste in local seafood have narrowed dramatically. Despite there being hundreds of edible and sustainable seafood species on our coasts, over 90% of seafood in America is imported. And half of our seafood consumption comes from just four species - cod, tuna, salmon, and shrimp. The global seafood trade has severely weakened our connection to our once thriving local seafood economies. As consumers, we have more power than we think to change the current system. We need not just demand more local seafood, but, just as importantly, we need to re-learn how to cook it!
Soups are a great way to get comfortable with cooking more seafood at home. They're not just nourishing but they also lend themselves well to quick recipes as well as healthy leftover meals.
In this webinar, local cookbook author, Craig Fear, will discuss...
- The ins-and-outs of making delicious seafood soups at home
- How to make incredible chowders not just from clams, but any type of fish or shellfish
- Tips and tidbits from his new book, New England Soups from the Sea (due out March 8th)
- Resources to help us expand our knowledge and support of local seafood in New England
- ...and more!
