We recently held a seafood dinner at Preux & Proper in collaboration with the EPA, Seafood Watch and Chefs Collaborative. We worked with West Coast seafood and the purpose was to spotlight underutilized species as well as abundant species that the EPA is currently promoting the fishing / eating of.
Aside from cooking for a great cause and raising awareness, my favorite part of hosting dinners of this nature are getting to have so many dope guest chefs in my kitchen! We did a 6 course menu featuring plates from Mary Sue Milliken (Border Grill), Elia Aboumrad (Hotel Normandie), Tristan Aitchison (Providence), David LeFevre (M.B. Post, The Arthur J, Fishing with Dynamite) and Christian Page (Cassell’s). We had Corie Brown of Chefs Collaborative, Sheila Bowman of Seafood Watch and Roxanne Nanninga of EPA in the house as well. We were also able to cut a check for 1K to Chefs Collaborative to keep the mothership funded!!!
Our super talented photographer Ziv Sade also displayed some really amazing art as well!
