Join us on Zoom Thursday, September 3rd at 8pm EST for a cruise on the ocean. Sardines aren't just for your crazy uncle's bomb shelter, they can actually be a beautiful addition to an evening. This tasting includes a variety of canned fish! It is Part One of a Two part event on conservas. In this tasting, we will focus on canned fish, from sardines to salmon. We will talk about the history of canned fish, and its evolution from wartime staple to a prominent delicacy in Europe. The event will be hosted by our canned fishmonger Will Werner and Cheesemonger Zach Berg. If you like this event, the second part will be all about shellfish and cephalopods (thats stuff like squid and octopus for you landlubbers). As Herman Melville wrote: "I try all things, I achieve what I can." So be adventurous and join us for this survey of superb seafood.
