Eating With the Ecosystem
October 9, 2012
Chef Rizwan Ahmed, owner of Hourglass Brasserie in Bristol, RI, is participating in a six-part dinner series taking place around Rhode Island this year called Eating with the Ecosystem. Eating with the Ecosystem is an initiative to promote a new, place-based definition of "sustainable seafood" that takes into account the whole ecosystem, rather than evaluating single species in isolation. Each dinner in the series features presentations by scientists, fishermen, and chefs, and presents a wide array of seafood from New England ecosystems. For this dinner, the featured ecosystem is the Gulf of Maine.
