Good Fish Cooking Class

Now doesn't that pretty Clare Barboza take a nice pic? In fact, she took all the pics in this post, and all the pics in Good Fish and lots of pics at my wedding and fine, okay, she's really really talented and mom and dad always loved her best and this caption is getting really, really long.

There's going to be a whole lot of fun events coming fast and furious this May and June to celebrate the release of Good Fish: Sustainable Seafood Recipes from the Pacific Coast, everything from free events at restaurants to cooking classes, and cooking demonstrations. This seems like a good enough place to post some of them.... so onward ho!

Clare likes boat balls. Always has. Always will.

Here are the details:

Date: May 20th, 2011

Where: Seattle Bon Vivant's Swanky Pad in lovely Seattle, Washington (when you sign up I'll get you more info)

Clare will not be at this class. Whatever, Clare.

What: I will demo 4 dishes from the book, showing you lots of fishy culinary technique and tips.

How much will listening to me drone on and on about clams cost you? $75

As previously stated, Clare will not be at this class. Yes I know she takes good pictures. But being a photographer isn't that great - I mean, it's cool and all, and she's really talented but at the end of the day, it's a photo of a trout. Which makes Clare a silly trout photographer. Clare, PLEASE come to the class.

Anything else?

1. Why yes, thank you for asking - there are only 8 spots and 4 were just taken - so there are 4 spots now. (6:31pm update, there are now just 2 spots left) Leave a comment here if you are interested in taking the class or send me an email to becky at cornucopia cuisine dot com  or send a smoke signal or sacrifice a mackerel or otherwise get my attention.  I will accept your clams via paypal.

2. There will be wine, a BYOB sort of thing. I will give you an idea of what to bring to go along with the food.

3. There will be books for sale ($30). I can sign these books. I can also create a one-of-a-kind, limited edition sardine schmear on your inside cover. Up to you.

4. In completely unrelated news, I heard today that Fred Meyer (i.e. Kroger) will be buying up Good Fish to display on their seafood counters from June through August. Viva la Sustainable Fish Revolution! I need to come up with a sardine power salute.

This is Clare's picture of scallops. Clare - CALL ME. I miss you!

Are you going to be doing any cooking demos or book signings outside Seattle? Maybe, even Southern California?

Sorry to say - this class is sold out but stay tuned there will be many other Good Fish classes and events in the month of May.
