Fish Class Wrap Up
Last Sunday, CFSBK and our new CSA partner Village Fishmonger sponsored a fish cooking class. VFM’s very own fish cutter Carolyn Koch, along with the gym’s CSA manager Michele K., led six participants through a variety of techniques and recipes, including scallop ceviche verde, broiled monkfish with Dijon mustard and thyme, bacon-wrapped monkfish, and Jacques Pepin’s monkfish à l’Américaine. Afterward, everyone enjoyed a lovely spring supper with wine and a whole lotta fish!
Here’s what CFSBK’s Katie M. had to say about the class:
“I’ve used the same two basic recipes for all fish for all my adult life (poach or bake!) and this class was a great afternoon expanding my toolkit of easy options. I left not only able to make more delicious recipes, but also left realizing that solely eating seafood from Trader Joe’s was perhaps not the ideal situation, either ethically or taste-wise. I’ll be joining the fish CSA for the chance to get those scallops (to make that amazing ceviche) alone! It was great to get to know other CFSBK-ers, learn from Michele and Carolyn from the seafood CSA, and eat some amazing food. If another cooking class option ever comes along, I highly recommend it.”
Many thanks to David for agreeing to sponsor the materials for the class, and to Carolyn for dedicating her Sunday afternoon to SBK. Asta took some great photos and you can see more on Michele’s blog. If you are interested in an opportunity to learn more about cooking fish, please email mignyc [at] gmail.com.
