Tuesday, November 12 at 6 pm in the Collis Family Gallery (second floor).
Join us for an author reception and book talk with Sarah Schumann, co-author of the new cookbook, Simmering the Sea: Diversifying Cookery to Sustain Our Fisheries.
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. 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.
Published in 2018 by the University of Rhode Island, Simmering the Sea is authored by Sarah Schumann, Kate Masury and Marie-Joelle Rochet. With recipes by Rizwan Ahmed and illustrations by Lea Tirmant-Desoyen.
Schumann will also share research from the citizen science project, Eat Like a Fish which tracked the availability of local seafood in the local marketplace to find out how well it matches (or doesn't match) the mix of species found off our shores.
This event is free and open to all.
Copies will be available for sale and signing by the author with all proceeds to benefit the nonprofit Eating with the Ecosystem.
