SE 26 – Choosing, Cooking and Eating Fish: A guided tour by the pros. Photo collage available for viewing.

SMS PIC 1Confused by terms like sustainable, local, farmed and line-caught? Interested in knowing why some of these terms may be critical to fish stocks and the future of fish as a food worldwide? Unsure about the evidence on the benefits of eating fish, including what kinds you should be eating? Would you like to eat more seafood, but don’t know how to select the freshest fish and the healthiest ways to cook it or what wines to pair with it? The crew at Santa Monica Seafood (SMS) in Costa Mesa and guest OC chefs will address all these topics and more! We will be served a multi-course lunch featuring seafood. Before lunch there will be presentations and, after lunch, demonstrations by SMS staff and local OC chefs using SMS’ seafood.

Presenters: Staff, Chefs and Guest Chefs of Santa Monica Seafood

AFishy Friday family-owned business since 1939, SMS is the largest seafood distributer in the Southwest United States. In addition to distribution to some of the finest chefs in the area, it is the first and only seafood company in the country to achieve the internationally recognized FSSC 22000 certification for its food safety systems. The company also operates retail stores and cafés in Costa Mesa, Santa Monica, and Santa Barbara.

SMS PIC 2NOTE: This is a self-drive event. Depending on the number of participants, the event will be held either in the SMS café, or under a tented area in the parking lot. As we get closer to the date, you will be provided with specifics as to menu and schedule. If you have any seafood allergies, these can be addressed at that time.
