You love to fish but what do you do with a fish once you catch it? Rhode Island Division of Fish and Wildlife's Aquatic Resource Education Program has partnered with Andy Lussier of Culinary Connections in offering a cooking class featuring fish and shellfish that were caught locally in Rhode Island. Participants will learn tips and techniques that will help them take fish from the lake to the table and make meals they'll be proud to serve family and friends. Topics will include handling and preparing local fish, storage, and cooking techniques. Registration is required and seating is limited. For more information, contact Jessica Pena at 401-530-0019 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Class Fee: $30.00/person.
