At Eating with the Ecosystem’s “School of Fish”, Rhode Island chefs will educate you on different methods for turning whole local seafood - straight from the sea - into a marvelous dinner you can share with your family and friends. Learn how to use plentiful local species like scup, skate, squid, Jonah crab, whiting, whole sea scallops, dogfish, sea robin, and fluke. Held in the demo kitchen (a former school classroom) at Hope & Main, each workshop is also a dinner, complete with wine and good company! Each workshop will feature one fish species, prepared several ways. Come for just one class or attend them all!
Location: Hope & Main Demonstration Kitchen, 691 Main St. Warren, RI 02885
Ticket price: $50 (includes class, dinner, and wine)
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.
