[please use with Fish Tales]

Coastal food aficionado Jennifer Burns Bright will visit Pacific City on Wednesday, May 29, for a presentation on Oregon’s seafood traditions.

The presentation, titled “Fish Tales,” is hosted by the Nestucca, Neskowin and Sand Lake Watersheds Council in partnership with Oregon Humanities, and aims to take some of the mystery out of choosing which seafood to buy.

“Oregonians love local food, but finding truly local fish can be hard, even on the coast,” Bright said. “We’re now much more aware of ethically grown meat and vegetables, but seafood remains somewhat mysterious. How does that crab get from the ocean to our table, and what’s the true cost of cheap salmon at the grocery store?”

Bright is a food and travel writer based in Astoria. When not out gathering seaweed or smoking black cod, she might be found judging culinary masterpieces or interviewing luminaries in the food world.

Her talk, which is free and open to all, will run from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive, Pacific City.

For more information, call Caleb Mentzer at 541-513-2604 or email assistant@nestuccawaters.org.
