A “Celebrate Seafood” Dinner Presented by Turner Fisheries and the New England Aquarium
Recent news reports about the dangers posed to our environment through the industrialization of our food supply have encouraged consumers to learn more about the importance of sustainability and how they can take part.
Luckily for consumers, Turner Fisheries is partnering with Boston’s own New England Aquarium to educate our guests about the importance of being “ocean friendly.” Both Turner Fisheries and the New England Aquarium recognize the importance of being environmentally friendly and practice sustainable operations in the restaurant and aquarium. Turners uses only fresh, sustainable fish from local sources; the Aquarium collaborates with fishermen and the seafood industry to minimize the environmental impacts of fishing, and helps educate the public about responsible seafood choices.
The highlight of our partnership is a “Celebrate Seafood” Dinner which will take place at the restaurant on Thursday, June 7, 2012. Beginning at 6:30pm with a cocktail reception, guests will enjoy locally-produced cheeses from Grafton Farms, Boggy Meadow Farms, and Great Hill Farms. Moving into the multi-course dinner, featured menu items will include locally farmed bay scallops, wild Alaska salmon and pacific halibut. New England Aquarium experts will also be on hand to talk about our featured species and to answer questions.
Paired with the dinner is a selection of wines produced by one of California’s premier sustainable wineries, Frei Brothers, located in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. On the tasting menu is their 2010 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, 2010 Reserve Chardonnay, and 2009 Reserve Pinot Noir.
It’s going to be a fantastic night at one of Boston’s best restaurants, with lots of delicious food, great wine and invaluable information. You can find all the info about the dinner and how to RSVP on the Aquarium website or on the Turner Fisheries website.
We look forward to seeing you there!
