Preparing fish using Banana Leaves

Let Chef Nieves-Flores take you on a trip around the world through a culinary demonstration. Chef Jaime will be showing versatile ways to prepare fish using banana leaves. Banana Leaves are a staple in South American, Caribbean, and Asian cuisine—steaming veggies, rice, and fish in carefully folded packets of banana leaves protects delicate veggies and protein from direct, dry heat. The leaves also impart a mild, sweet, earthy flavor, and individual banana leaf parcels make for an impressive presentation—and it’s truly easy enough to prepare for a crowd if you’re looking for an entrée with a little extra flair.

Breakdown of of Hybrid Striped Bass

PJ Paland from Seattle Fish of Denver will take you to through the process of breaking down a Striped Bass. Breaking down a fish gets you more in touch with where it comes from. And it gives you a great opportunity to maintain healthy food costs in your kitchen. Join PJ in this great demo!

5:30 PM  

Breakdown of Beef Tenderloin

The tenderloin is a muscle (Psoas major) that runs down the length of the backbone and sits below the ribs of a cow. This muscle does very little work, and as a result – it is one of the most tender (and expensive) cuts of beef, like filet mignon or chateaubriand. When you learn the tricks of how to cut your own tenderloin, you can save some money and some of the extra cuts can be used for different purposes in your kitchen.

6:30 PM  

Whole Chicken Breakdown

If there's one knife skill that can save you money and make you look cool, it's breaking down a chicken. For about the same price as a pack of two breasts, you can buy a whole chicken, which comes with those same breasts, two legs, and a back. Join our friends from RedBird Farms to learn all the tips and tricks of breaking a whole chicken.
