PDX Trash Fish Makes Headlines

On November 10, chefs Cathy Whims (Nostrana and Oven & Shaker), PJ Yang (Bamboo Sushi), Kelly Myers (Xico), and Kevin Gibson (Evoe) got together in Porltand, OR to host a Trash Fish Dinner at Whims’ Nostrana.

Today, Portland’s OPB radio station featured the dinner:

“This is a Wolf Eel. It may not look particularly appealing but some chefs and environmentalists want you to consider eating it. Kelly Myers is the chef at Xico and she says it tastes great — and it’s not even actually an eel. She’s part of the Chefs Collaborative that’s aiming to both expand the American palate and save some vulnerable fish populations.”  Click here to continue reading or listening.
