Virtual Tasting - Call Me Fishmael Pt 2, A Mollusk Tasting - Friday, September 11th

Regular price $120.00 Sale

Join us on Zoom Friday, September 11th at 8pm EST for a cruise on the ocean. It is part two of a two part event on conservas.

In part two of our conservas tasting we tackle tentacles and shuck shells in search of magnificent molluscs!  In this tasting, we will focus on canned shellfish and cephalopods be they in sauce, ink, or olive oil. 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 first part will be all about fish from burly bonito to slight sardines. 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.
