The Hidden Bounty Around us: Underutilized Seafood of Long Island
39 Tuckahoe Rd Stony Brook, Southampton, NY 11968
Southampton Village & Surrounding Areas
Join Amagansett Food Institute, Haskell’s Seafood, and Peconic Baykeeper for an immersive introduction to seafood on Long Island and its sustainability, sourcing, and preparation. Led by those with an abiding commitment to supporting our local food heritage and promoting the health of our waters, this workshop is a deep dive into the bounty of Long Island. Each session will feature a local seafood recipe prepared by Captain Peter Haskell, an experienced fisherman whose business model is centered around sustainability and seasonality. While we enjoy our meal we will also learn about how we can become more involved in supporting local seafood and the waters it depends on while discovering delicious and local seafood cuisine. Sean O’Neill, the Executive Director of Peconic Baykeeper, will tell the story of our local waters and how our sustainable commercial fisheries are vital to the health of our local ecosystem and vice versa, while Baykeeper Peter Topping brings his knowledge of fish habitat and a lifetime on our local waters to illustrate the importance of our precious natural resources. Part 2: The Hidden Bounty Around us: Underutilized Seafood of Long Island Certain types of seafood are readily available in our regional waters and capture the unique terroir of Long Island. The thing is, you haven’t heard of most of them and they’re likely not on the menu at your favorite joint. But consuming what we refer to as “underutilized” seafood can have a positive environmental impact since it allows us to take advantage of the bounty around us, while while balancing our selective consumption of local seafoods. But does it taste good? We’ll let you be the judge and sample some fresh catch from Haskell’s seafood, specially prepared during the workshop with some underappreciated local produce selections. This is the second session of a three part series. Attendees are encouraged, but not required, to attend all three sessions.
