Join us at the Audubon Society of Rhode Island's Nature Center and Aquarium in Bristol RI for a rich and engaging discussion about our new bookSimmering the Sea: Diversifying Cookery to Sustain Our Fisheries.Co-author Kate Masury will reveal the ecological thinking behind the book and its enticing recipes, and talk about how the book builds on Eating with the Ecosystem’s work towards promoting a place-based approach to sustaining New England's wild seafood. Learn about what you can do to help New England balance our seafood diets with the variety of seafood that our local waters produce! Books will be available for purchase ($20) and signing at the event. 

Simmering the Sea is an underwater culinary adventure where you will meet (and learn how to prepare) forty underappreciated fish and shellfish that populate the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Sample species as varied as the coastal slipper limpet to the deep-water Acadian redfish, while learning how each one contributes to a flourishing ecosystem in the sea. Produced through a partnership between the University of Rhode Island, the nonprofit Eating with the Ecosystem, and Johnson & Wales University College of Culinary Arts, this is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind cookbook that can serve as your manual for a more intimate and balanced relationship with the marine ecosystems off New England’s shores.
