Fishing for the bounty of the Great Lakes

Terry and Dirk Fucik

Terry and Dirk Fucik

Sample the delights of freshwater fish with
Slow Food Chicago at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 24, in a “Taste of the Great Lakes” dinner at Dirk’s Fish & Gourmet Shop on the Clybourn Corridor.

Fishmongers Dirk and Terry Fucik celebrate the bounty of the Great Lakes and present a family-style dinner featuring local fish as well as invasive species: smoked rainbow trout wraps, smoked whitefish spread, panko fried smelt, walleye sandwiches, Asian carp croquettes, plank-smoked lake trout, Tempura perch, and Dirk’s “Cook County” fish boil.

Conservation experts from the Shedd Aquarium’s “Right Bite” program will also be on hand.

The evening is BYOB. Tickets are $65 and include recipes and product information. Proceeds partly support Slow Food Chicago’s Terra Madre campaign.
