This weekend, the third annual Let's Talk About Food Festival returns to Boston. This free, public event is sponsored by the Boston Globe and Whole Foods Market and is intended to be a forum for education and engagement around all things concerning food.
The complete schedule is available online and includes cooking demonstrations, talks, chances to interact with Chefs and Nutritionists, author signings, and the Endless Table with the Museum of Science that will offer conversations with experts on issues such as GMO labeling, food waste, sustainable agriculture and sustainable seafood.
All of this sounds interesting to me, but I'm especially interested in the events and booths focused on sustainable seafood. I plan to check out the Museum of Science's booth, as well as Saturday's 1PM demo: Something Fishy.
Here's the complete description:
Intimidated by the idea of choosing sustainable seafood and cooking it at home? Chef and sustainable seafood advocate Barton Seaver will join seafood distributor Michael Dimin of Sea2Table and Chef Jeremy Sewall of Lineage Restaurant for a seafood talk and demo that will cover how to select the highest quality sustainable seafood for your family (hint: fresh doesn't always top frozen), and how to prepare it at home with simple techniques.
The festival kicks off tonight with an opening party, and I definitely plan to be there tomorrow! Check back next week to read my recap.
