FEATURING AUTHOR ALIZA GREEN AND SAMUELS SEAFOOD
PHILADELPHIA, PA – Spots are still available for Oyster House (1516 Sansom Street, 215-567-7683) Seafood 101 event with renowned cookbook author Aliza Green who will teach tips on how to prepare and cook fresh fish from her latest book, The Fishmonger’s Apprentice (Quarry, 2010) on Saturday, April 23 at 3 p.m.
Seafood 101 will feature a variety of demonstrations from acclaimed author Green, drawing from The Fishmonger’s Apprentice including how to clean and cook calamari and how to pickle mackerel. Samuels Seafood will also have a fish monger at the event, taking attendees through the challenge of deboning a shad fillet.
“Tuition” is $30 per person, and includes a signed copy of The Fishmonger’s Apprentice, as well as samples of dishes being prepared and two full hours of instruction and question-and-answer time.
“Butchering whole fish is a task that is somewhat shrouded in mystery – but it shouldn’t be,” says Green. “Preparing and cooking seafood is wonderfully rewarding, and I’m excited to illustrate that knowledge for our guests.”
