July 22 Forum Offers Tasting, Recipes From Underutilized Seafood Stocks
July 9, 2008
Local foodies will soon get an opportunity to expand their culinary palates
during a forum to showcase lesser-known seafood products.
The Atlantic Culinary Academy (ACA), Shoals Marine Lab and NH Sea Grant are
co-hosting a Sustainable Seafood Forum tasting on Tuesday, July 22 from 6 – 9
p.m. at the ACA’s Dover location in L’Esprit. The forum is intended
to help create professional and public awareness of seafood products that are
not necessarily targeted by local fishermen in order to create sustainable
supplies and relieve pressure from overharvested stocks.
The seafood will be prepared by local restaurant chefs as well as faculty
chef instructors from the ACA. In addition to the seafood tasting, food preparation
demonstrations and education presentations will be made. All participating
chefs will offer their recipes to the tasters as part of the event.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased through the UNH Cooperative Extension
Web site at http://extension.unh.edu/Marine/FA_FMGMT.htm. For more information,
