Seafood 101
Reviewed by Sylvia G. on 9/22/2019
Fun class. Was scared to cook fish before- feel confident I can cook a lobster, grill or poach a fish AND make my own salad dressing ( the salad was delicious)!

Chef Hans was very thorough, personable and he made the event fun. His assistant was lovely. The menu selection was lovely. The only question I had was How to choose the best whole fish & seafood at Fulton Market. Hans did mention they do give a tour at 1:00 2:00 a.m.? He mentioned the market opens at 4 or 5 a.m. Would love to get a tour where the bset chefs buy their supply daily.

Dinner at 7: Fresh Fall Fish (Demo)

at Marcel's Culinary Experience - Glen Ellyn 490 N Main St, Chicago, Illinois 60137

Fish and seafood don’t have to be synonymous with lake days and summer breezes. Invite fish into fall with herbs, broths, and bolder flavors. Rethink light, lemony crudos and opt instead for more substantial fare. Shrimp takes well to smokey peppers and creamy grits, and simple filets dazzle with fall vegetables and a fragrant broth.  Wine and...
