Fin fish are healthy, quick to cook and delicious. Living in the Great Northwest, it seems almost criminal to not enjoy this bounty of our region as often as possible. Then why is it that many people avoid cooking fish at home?

Join Chef Drohman for a class dedicated to all things fish.

We will discuss the ins and outs of picking the best fish, including selecting the right fishmonger in Seattle.
We will look at issues around seasonality, farm-raised fish, sustainability and mercury levels.
We will learn the differences between round and flat fish and how to butcher and handle them both, including cleaning, scaling and fileting.
We will explore several different methods of cooking that can be applied to almost all fish, including whole roasting, shallow poaching and sautéing.
We will discuss selecting other seasonal flavors to best compliment different types of fish.

And finally, we will taste the dishes that we prepare and explore how to match different fish dishes with wines from the French countryside.
