Master Seafood Cooking Class with Fishmonger Fiona Lewis, Chef/Owner The District Fishwife.

Fiona will demonstrate crispy skin fish and best practices to achieve the perfect crispness; class participants will help prepare favorite seafood dressings and marinades, and of course, feast upon the class bounty.

About Fiona: Fiona Lewis is the founder and co-owner of three businesses in DC’s Union Market: The District Fishwife, On Toast, and Son of a Fish. Fiona was DC’s first female fishmonger. She is a nationally recognized expert on sustainable seafood, conservation of local fish species and an advocate for regional fisheries. Originally from Australia, Fiona has worked in restaurants and hospitality around the world – including Myanmar, Afghanistan and Vietnam. She is a recipient of the James Beard Foundation’s Women in Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellowship and a co-founder of the Women in DC Food mentorship and advocacy group. Fiona hopes to enjoy wild seafood, support wild fisheries, and ensure the health of our oceans, lakes, and rivers forever. She is also an aquaculture advocate and believes that supporting well-managed aquaculture and responsibly harvested farmed fish and shellfish is the best way to meet ever-growing demand for fresh seafood, easing the strain on wild populations and ensuring a sustainable future.

Fiona’s recipe for Cioppino can be found on page 37 of A Taste of Hill Center.
