What could be better than eating a delicious meal prepared by a celebrated Chef?
Perhaps enjoying a delicious meal centered around sustainability alongside some of the individuals involved in sourcing the ingredients, and learning the stories of those fisheries?
MSC and US Chef Ambassador Gregory Gourdet hosted a memorable, in-person dining experience for seafood lovers this past October in San Francisco, served with a side of storytelling. Chef Gourdet crafted a delicious meal centered around MSC-certified Texas oysters, North Atlantic squid, and Pacific chilipepper rockfish.
While diners enjoyed each #FeelGoodSeafood course, representatives from each of the fisheries shared facts about the species, great tips on how to prepare the fish at home, and why being MSC certified sustainable is so important to their business models.
