Sustainable Seafood Supper
Have you ever wondered if seafood can be Slow? That is, can it be "Good, Clean, AND Fair," meeting all three Slow Food criteria at once? Join Slow Food Corvallis, Laura Anderson of Local Ocean Seafood, premier Willamette Valley Chef JC Mersmann, and Pheasant Court Winery at the Gathering Together Farm (GTF) Garden Room for a delicious and informative evening and proof that the answer is a resounding YES!
On Thursday evening, November 9th we will gather at 6:30 pm for a dinner featuring a panoply of locally caught wild seafood prepared by Chef JC, and provided by Laura Anderson, proprietor of Local Ocean Seafood. In addition to having started and grown a successful seafood market and one of Newports best restaurants, Laura holds a Masters in Marine Resource Management from OSU, and is recognized as a leader of Oregons fishing community. Chef JC is well-known to local diners as the former Chef at GTF, and the beating heart of many charitable feasts for great causes, such as Supper at SAGE.
Our favorite local Chef will provide the following menu:
On arrival: 2 Kumamoto Oysters
Marinated Albacore with Hearty Salad
Shrimp in Parsley Sauce over Sfogliatelle
Olive Oil-Poached Halibut over Artichoke Barigoule
Dessert: Zeppole with Dark Chocolate
After the meal, which will be accompanied by a flight of wines provided by Pheasant Courts Charlie Gilson, Laura will explain Oregons successful emergence as a world leader in sustainable seafood and enumerate the very sound reasons for eating local seafood. While Oregon contributes a small part of the global fish catch, it is a huge and vital part of our coastal economy. By minimizing habitat impacts and being selective in catching target species, Oregon has some of the best-managed fisheries in the world. Our speaker will break down the major fisheries in Oregon (Dungeness crab, pink shrimp, albacore tuna, Chinook salmon, groundfish, and pacific whiting.) Then well have time for plenty of audience Q and A about regulations, globalization, consumer food preferences, environmental conservation, and other aspects of our commercial fishing fleet and maritime culture.
