About

Learn to cook fresh, local seafood in time for the holidays.

You’ve probably heard that we all need to be eating more seafood. But you also may have heard that overfishing and imported seafood make it tricky to figure out what fish and shellfish are good to eat (and good for the environment). This class will teach you about local underutilized alternatives to popular fish like salmon, cod and imported shrimp and how you can support the local North Carolina seafood industry. After a lesson in selecting fish at the Locals Seafood market counter, nutritionist Katherine Andrew will discuss the health benefits of seafood and demonstrate easy ways to cook fish and shellfish at home. To cap off the evening, Chef Eric Montagne will serve a three course sampler menu of dishes from the Locals Oyster Bar restaurant menu. (Beer, wine, and cocktails may be purchased at the Transfer Food Hall bar).
