School of Fish

At Eating with the Ecosystem’s “School of Fish”, Rhode Island chefs will educate you on different methods for turning a whole fish - straight from the sea - into a marvelous dinner you can share with your family and friends. Learn how to use plentiful local species like scup, herring, whiting, skate, dogfish, and sea robin. Held in the demo kitchen (a former school classroom) at Hope & Main, each workshop is also a dinner, complete with wine and good company!  Each workshop will feature one fish species, prepared several ways. Come for just one class or attend them all! 

Lesson 1 (January 23): Chef Branden Read of Celestial Cafe

Lesson 2 (February 27):  Chef Helio Araujo of Jamestown Fish

Lesson 3 (March 20):   Chef Matt Tortora of Crave Food Services*
