The event will feature a panel discussion hosted by Harry Rosenblum, Eating with the Ecosystem Board member, who will lead a discussion of the Japanese technique of Ikejime, which is a specific way to prepare fish, yielding a better tasting, healthier meat. It is well known as the most humane way to kill fish, resulting in a longer shelf life, and more umami. Beginning with a panel and Q&A we will cover the reasons Ikejime is good for you and the fish, how to perform the technique and how it fits into our fishing economy. Following the panel we will move into the gallery where attendees will get a signature cocktail, along with a demo and tasting of conventional vs Ikejime fish using local species such as Scup and Fluke.
