June 10 marks the beginning of our eighth annual Oceanic Dinner event, which our trusted co-conspirator Tom Worthington of Monterey Fish Company says is looking very good for all our fishery sources (except local salmon). Our Oceanic Dinners are the most spectacular of our special events. We will serve some sixty species of sea beings and plants, all absolutely fresh, harvested sustainably, and prepared deliciously, skillfully, imaginatively, and respectfully.
We've been taping "footage" about fisheries and fishermen, the dinners, and the fish themselves for years, and, with our new Oliveto Community Journal, finally have a venue for showing that compelling material.
Chef Paul Canales took the trip of a lifetime to Japan's enormous fish markets and visited with Japanese chefs several weeks ago and will share much of what he learned about fish butchery and cookery at the Oceanic Dinners.
