Take a mini-vacation on foreign shores at our “Local Fishes, Global Dishes” Cooking Class.

The workshop features instruction and hands on-demonstrations using local catch to prepare classic and exotic dishes from the Mediterranean and Asia.  The class will also include recipes and tips for preparing favorites from the Oregon Coast.

Jennifer will guide participants in the preparation of:

Thai Rockfish Cakes with cucumber dipping sauce. 

Tunisian Brik (a savory pastry filled with tuna, egg, and capers). 

Provencal Sunshine (bourride fish soup with roasted red pepper aioli).

Attendees will have the option of prepping, cooking, and serving these epicurean delights.  Afterward, a shared meal. 

Is your mouth watering yet?
