ceviche-639900Have you ever wanted to know how chefs make those rock star but simplistic Florida-fresh sustainable seafood dishes? Now is your chance. Join Erik Walker, Culinary Director for the Chiles Group, for a chance to learn how to make three mouth-watering dishes using locally sourced, sustainable fish and a variety of fresh ingredients. This interactive and fun food preparation class will take place on Saturday, July 22nd,  from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Participants will learn how to make a ceviche using locally sourced fish, prepare a shrimp roll, using gulf/local shrimp and a watermelon salad, all perfect for the Florida summer. Erik will also share how acid affects the fish, how to make an aioli at home from scratch, as well as knife safety and precision knife cuts. And best of all, once dishes are complete students will get to savor their creations.
Registration fee is $65 with proceeds benefitting The Folk School and Florida Maritime Museum. Register online at For info call (941)708-6120. This class will be outdoors under tents, and participants are asked to bring water, hat, sunscreen and sunglasses. Seating is limited to 15 students to ensure one on one attention from Chef Erik and an intimate class environment. Each student will have their own work station with all ingredients and tools included. There will also be a drawing to win a $50 gift card to one of the Chiles Group Restaurants.
