The GOODS from Ocean Wise
Vancouver, BC | Inspired chefs and at-home cooks can feast their eyes at Fin to Tail, a new event from the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, featuring cooking demonstrations from the city’s hottest Ocean Wise® chefs. Seafood lovers will learn from the pros, including Chef Jonathan Chuy of La Mezcaleria, Chef Clement Chan of Torafuku, Chef Ned Bell of Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise culinary team as well as top talent from Fresh Ideas Start Here (F.I.S.H.)
A one-of-a-kind culinary event, Fin to Tail is taking place Thursday, August 11 at 7 p.m. Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Vancouver Aquarium’s outdoor courtyard and indoor galleries, each chef will prepare for their audience a simple, mouth-watering Ocean Wise dish. Tastebuds will be treated with sampling plates of each dish, paired with crisp wine from Whitehaven Winery and refreshing beer, courtesy of Red Truck Beer Company.
Guests will get an intimate look into how these top local chefs create their favourite sustainable dishes, with opportunities for Q&A following the demonstrations. Takeaway goodies include recipe cards for each dish, making it easy for guests to recreate the memorable meals at home.
“The sustainability movement continues to gain momentum, as consumers increasingly care about what they’re eating and its impact on the environment. At Fin to Tail, at-home chefs can learn from Vancouver’s very best about how to bring sustainability into their own kitchen,” said Ann-Marie Copping, Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program manager. “We have incredible Ocean Wise partners in this city, and there’s no better way to learn about preparing delicious ocean-friendly seafood than from these ambassadors, who know how to please the palate.”
