Get hooked on Seafood!
ESB is resuming it’s collaborations with Get Hooked to host a culinary demonstration on how to prepare seafood sourced through Get Hooked, a Community Supported Fishery Service that delivers locals the highest quality sustainable seafood, sourced directly from local fishermen.
ESB Founder, Chef Amy Baer Robinson will host this culinary demonstration, which will feature Squid, King Salmon, and Sea bass! The demonstration will be a fun, homespun approach to cooking; utilizing ingredients available in a home kitchen, techniques that are adaptable to other species of fish, and tricks and recipes adapted from notable chefs and restaurants! Beverages will also be served.
In addition to the class, guests have the option to pre-purchase two out of three of the featured frozen seafood selections to take home after the event, so they too can prepare the dishes when they please! This is a great opportunity to sample Get Hooked’s Seafood program for those who are not yet members.
As a collaboration between Get Hooked and Epicurean Santa Barbara, members of both entities are welcome to register for this event!
PLEASE NOTE: This event is being held in a private home. The host kindly requires that all attendees be vaccinated.
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. Beverages will also be provided at this event.
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. 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!
