ESB is collaborating with Chef P.A. Tremblay to host a culinary demonstration on how to store, prep and cook seafood sourced through Get Hooked, a Community Supported Fishery Service that delivers locals the highest quality sustainable seafood, sourced directly from local fishermen.
Local, sustainably-caught seafood is not easy to find in stores in Santa Barbara. Most of Santa Barbara’s seafood leaves town, and the community is largely unaware of how desirable our local seafood is and how much better it is for the environment compared with buying imported seafood.
Chef P.A. Tremblay will lead the demonstration which will end with a meal featuring the fresh catch courtesy Get Hooked. This spontaneous, and (partially) improvised interpretation of the dinner preparation will be a fun, homespun approach to cooking; utilizing ingredients available in a home kitchen, and techniques that are easily adaptable to any species of fish.
A representative from Get Hooked will also be present to educate members on Community Supported Fisheries and sustainability, and the diversity of the Santa Barbara Channel! Guests will see how Get Hooked’s seafood arrives, and experience first-hand the quality of the catch, all while learning tricks and tips to cook seafood to perfection with easy, no-recipe needed techniques. ESB will provide beverages.
While seafood counters at Santa Barbara stores are stocked with foreign products that may or may not be harvested sustainably or labeled truthfully, CSF’s such as Get Hooked know exactly who caught your seafood, where it was caught, and how and when it was caught. They provide information on the species of seafood, health benefits, and even a short bio of the fisherman. Their passion is bringing the Santa Barbara Channel into your home!
