Slow Fish – Slowing Down To Enjoy Sustainable Food

Chef’s Table Society Presents Slow Fish in the Kitchens of PICA

The Slow Food movement includes food from the land and also food from the Ocean. It’s a little more difficult to see the state of the sea and what lies beneath, but it’s equally important. For the third year a group of chefs from the Chef’s Table Society and sustainable seafood suppliers band together in Vancouver to present a Slow Fish Dinner, and this September 8 chefs cooked in 8 kitchens and paired their dishes all with salmon-safe local wines to raise awareness of the seafood we should be consuming more of if we want to save our seas.
