Taste of the Great Lakes - Local and Invasive Species Dinner
                          Tuesday April 24th
                          Dirk's Fish & Gourmet Shop (2070 N. Clybourn)

                          Cost is $65 per person, includes a donation to Slow Food Chicago for our Terra Madre effort to "Send a Farmer to Italy"

                           21+ BYOB

                          Limited to 25 people

Join acclaimed fishmonger, Dirk Fucik, and his wife Terry, in celebrating our Great Lakes region and the distinctive seafood it provides us -- including the controversial Asian carp you've heard about in the news! This family-style dinner includes eight of Dirk & Terry's original recipes, featuring local & invasive fish that were caught or farmed in environmentally friendly ways: smoked rainbow trout wraps, smoked whitefish spread, panko fried smelt, walleye sandwiches, Asian carp croquettes, plank-smoked lake trout, Tempura perch, and Dirk's "Cook County" fish boil.

Special guests that evening will include conservation experts from the Shedd Aquarium's "Right Bite" program.

It promises to be a night of great food and terrific discussion on fish, the Great Lakes and our fish choices in Chicago.

Remember, BYOB, Dirk and Terry will take care of the rest!

Right in our own backyard lays one of the great wonders of the world, freshwater inland seas, called the Great Lakes. These lakes hold more than 20% of the world's fresh water and are home to many different types of "local" and sustainable fish. Tonight's dinner is a celebration of these fish, incorporated into our original recipes as a sumptuous feast for your taste buds.

This is not a cooking class though we will give out the recipes and product information. We want you to try some new foods, learn about what we can do to help our local aquatic environment, eat and have fun. We will have a raffle for a tasty prize too.

BYOB your favorite wine or beverage and we will provide the rest.
