From Sea to Table

One of the best things about boating is enjoying the coastal lifestyle--and what comes with that lifestyle is fresh, local seafood! Whether you catch it yourself, buy at your fish or farmers market, or go out to dine on seafood before, during or after your boating excursions, enjoying the cuisine of the sea is definitely one of the best reasons to go boating. To celebrate that tradition, each year the Providence Boat Show features Sea-to-Table Special Events that run throughout the show. Here are just some of the highlights…

Friday & Sunday: Oyster Shucking Master Class
An exciting addition this year is a series of knife skills classes coordinated by Flint & Flame. With a new Rhode Island showroom in Bristol, this company’s knives are made from high-quality German carbon steel and are celebrated by top chefs and home cooks.

Join the Bristol Oyster Bar and Flint & Flame for an Oyster Shucking Master Class on Friday or Sunday. This Bristol restaurant’s owner Peter Sebring has cultivated his vision for this eatery since he was 14 years old and has spent most of his time since then on the water--fishing and raising oysters.

Saturday: Knife Skills Fillet Class with Chef Zeke
You can learn to properly fillet the fish you catch or buy at your local market in the Saturday Knife Skills Fillet Class with Chef Zeke Lawrence and Flint & Flame. A graduate of Johnson & Wales whose true passion is using his know-how as a professional chef to help home cooks improve their skills, Chef Zeke will demonstrate how a range of knives serve different purposes for preparing your catch—from an 8-inch chef’s knife to a paring knife, boning knife, and fillet knife. He will also give you pointers on how to choose the freshest catch from your fish or farmer’s market.

On Saturday, George’s of Galilee makes a special appearance for a Tuna Fillet Demo & Tasting at the Anchor Bar. Overlooking Block Island Sound, George’s of Galilee Waterfront Seafood Restaurant has been serving generations of families its signature dishes since 1948, with a wide selection of fresh, local seafood fresh from the local boats, farm-to-table vegetables, a seasonal sushi menu, and lobster specials.
