Join We The Eaters for a seafood extravaganza celebrating the versatility and flavors of the sea with an informative dinner hosted by Cedar Restaurant in Washington D.C.
The evening begins with a cash-bar cocktail hour featuring a sparkling varietal from Vino50, passed seafood-inspired hors d’oeuvres, and mingling with purveyors and other guests. Each of three courses begins with a brief talk from ProFish Ltd. about sustainability and sourcing, followed by a presentation of the course by Cedar’s Executive Chef, Aaron McCloud. Chef McCloud will also answer questions and provide cooking tips for a variety of seafood that guests can try at home.
Attendees will receive a gift bag with supplemental educational material, discount coupons, promotional “schwag,” as well as a recipe for a seafood dish and accompanying spice rub.
To maintain an intimate event where guests have maximum interaction with Chef McCloud and the other presenters, seating is limited. For adults over the age of 21, a wine pairing will be available onsite for an additional fee. Each wine has been carefully selected to complement the individual courses of the meal.
A portion of proceeds for the event will be donated to No Kid Hungry.
