May 31st, 6 PM, Pier 4, Driscoll’s Wharf
Dine on the Dock, an evening of fine food and entertainment featuring local fishermen’s catch prepared with an Italian accent by several of San Diego’s most acclaimed chefs, will take place on the dock at Driscoll’s Wharf in Point Loma on the evening of May 31, 2012, at 6 pm. Slow Food URBAN San Diego and The San Diego Fisherman’s Working Group, with sponsorship from The San Diego Italian Film Festival as part of their CineCucina celebration, are presenting this delicious and fun evening to focus attention on a revitalized fishing industry in San Diego.
Come and enjoy fresh and exquisite local food gleaned from the sea by members of the San Diego Fisherman’s Working Group including Mitch Hobron (Taxi II), Phil Harris (Sea Nag), Gary Harle (Victoria Ann), Mike Flynn (Baby Joe), Pete Halmay (Erin B.) and Zach Roach (Addiction). These fishermen continue in the tradition of early San Diego-Italian fishermen who provided the means for many families to join the American middle class. The cuisine these families introduced to San Diego, and America, is based on a moderate and sustainable level of fishing spread across a wide range of species, stocks and sizes.
To prepare this local seafood, event producer, San Diego Weekly Markets, has recruited some of the best local chefs including Pete Balistreri (Tender Greens), Andrew Spurgin (Campine catering company), Melissa Mayer (Martini Media), Craig Jimenez (Craft and Commerce), Chad White (Gabardine), Amy DiBiase (The Shores Restaurant ), Ryan Johnston (Whisknladle), and Trey Foshee (George’s at the Cove)
Proceeds will be used by the sponsoring non-profits for continuous promotion of this dockside market where local commerce will help improve our lives and make them more delicious.
Dine on the Dock celebrates the intersection of local Italian culture and the fishing industry
