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.
