About the chef: The creative and uncommon culinary finesse of Waterman Grille¹s imaginative menus lie in the talented hands of Executive Chef Noah Metnick.  Born in Israel, Noah moved to East Side of Providence at a young age where his interest in the culinary trade began as a line cook at the city¹s Leon's on the West Side. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and continued his training at the exclusive Maidstone Club in East Hampton, NY and the exquisite La Grenouille in New York City where his diligence and passion for excellence earned him the top spot as the restaurant¹s executive chef. Noah credits the passion and mentoring of his colleagues at La Grenouille for his success as the artistic and disciplined chef he is today. Currently, as executive chef of Waterman Grille, he delights guests with imaginative small plates and grilled specialties, each influenced by the elegance and art of fine French cuisine and the fresh, local bounty of New England.

December School of Fish Featuring Peter Gobin w/ John Dory

Our December class will feature Chef Peter Gobin with John Dory! Chef Peter is a classically trained in french cooking but also runs a taco truck inspired by his time in Southern California. John Dory is one of his favorite fish to cook and he's excited to share his favorite recipes with guests. 

John Dory is a solitary deepwater fish with a vertically flattened body shape and upturned mouth. Its shimmery, scaleless silver skin bears a "St. Peter's thumbprint" just behind its gills, a trait it shares with spot and haddock. John Dory are found along the outer continental shelf from the Chesapeake Bay to Nova Scotia and are landed as an incidental bycatch by boats pursuing other targets. They eat fish, squid, and crustaceans and have a sweet mild flakes white flesh. 

Location: Hope & Main Demonstration Kitchen, 691 Main St. Warren, RI 02885

Ticket price: $50 (includes lesson, dinner, and wine)
