Sustainable seafood is on the menu as the New England Aquarium hosts the final Celebrate Seafood Dinner of the 2010 season, bringing together guests and local chefs for an evening of eco-friendly dining. On November 9, the Aquarium welcomes Chef Richard Garcia, an award-winning chef known for his commitment to local and sustainable practices. Garcia was honored in 2009 by nationally recognized Starchefs.com as one of Boston’s Rising Star Chefs and received the Sustainability Award for his commitment to sustainable practices.
Garcia and an Aquarium chef will lead a menu of farm-raised sturgeon caviar, wild caught Northern Pink Shrimp, and farm-raised Arctic char, which all are considered sustainable species due to the way they are farmed and caught.
Initiated in 2007, the Aquarium’s Celebrate Seafood Dinner Series features a three-course sustainable seafood meal with wine pairings and cooking demonstrations in a fun, conversational format. Together, the chefs lead cooking demonstrations while an Aquarium sustainable fisheries expert highlights each dish’s sustainability features. The dinners are held in the Aquarium’s Harbor View Café. www.neaq.org to register and learn more about sustainable seafood. Public transportation: Blue Line to the Aquarium.
