Valerie visited our class at the Cabot After School Program in Newton, bringing an entire Monkfish for our young chefs to learn about! In collaboration with Karen Masterson of Johnny’s Luncheonette, Valerie shared what is means to work for a sustainable fishery & how important it is to eat fish from our cold Boston coast to reduce the burden on over-fished populations worldwide.
Thanks for bringing in the Monkfish- so cool!
