Cook a Fish Give a Fish
November 11, 2020 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
The saying goes, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” But what happens if this man doesn’t know how to cook fish?
Today, too many people find themselves in this position. If you’re one of them – or if you’re a hobbyist who loves sharing your seafood zeal with others – then “Cook a Fish, Give a Fish” classes are for you!
Each small-group online class is led by a different chef. Participants learn how to cook with a different local species each session, starting with the whole fish and producing a finished meal for your family to enjoy. Make new friends from the comfort of your kitchen while gaining insights into ways a skilled chef approaches seafood!
Organized by the Commercial Fisheries Center of RI, Eating with the Ecosystem, and the Rhode Island Food Policy Council, these classes not only stream intimate seafood education to you in the comfort of your own home; they also raise funds to share local seafood with Ocean State families who cannot afford it themselves. Proceeds from ticket sales will be used to purchase and package local seafood for families who have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 economic crisis. Proceeds from your ticket cover the cost of 10 meals for Rhode Islanders in need!
