Visit with Sarah Schumann, author of Simmering the Sea

Join us at Tres Gatos restaraunt and bookstore to visit with local author Sarah Schumann. Sarah will read from and sign copies of her new ecological seafood cookbook, "Simmering the Sea: Diversifying Cookery to Sustain Our Fisheries." Learn what inspired this lovely little cookbook, and how Sarah wants to help your diversify your local seafood diet!

Simmering the Sea is an underwater culinary adventure where you will meet (and learn how to prepare) forty underappreciated fish and shellfish that populate the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Sample species as varied as the coastal slipper limpet to the deep-water Acadian redfish, while learning how each one contributes to a flourishing ecosystem in the sea. Produced through a partnership between the University of Rhode Island, the nonprofit Eating with the Ecosystem, and Johnson & Wales University College of Culinary Arts, this is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind cookbook that can serve as your manual for a more intimate and balanced relationship with the marine ecosystems off New England’s shores.

Sarah Schumann fishes commercially in New England and Alaska and advocates for healthy marine ecosystems as a freelance educator and writer. In addition to Simmering the Sea, she is the author of Rhode Island's Shellfish Heritage: An Ecological History.

The event is free and open to all. Beverages are available for purchase from the restaurant bar.
