Something Fishy This Way Comes

Only days remain until the McNamara Alumni Center in Minneapolis will welcome chefs, serious foodies and hundreds of pounds of Lake Superior lake herring through its doors. There are still a few tickets left for the fun and classy A Salute to Lake Superior's Sustainable Fisheries, coming up on Tuesday, November 13 from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

The public event, back because of last year's rave reviews, showcases what ten professional chefs can do with Lake Superior's lake herring. Minnesota's own Michael Monroe will provide live music. This year's diverse roster of chefs includes Ed Douglass of Naniboujou Lodge (Grand Marais), Scott Graden of New Scenic Café (Duluth), and Wyatt Evans of W.A. Frost & Co (St. Paul). Prior to 5 p.m. when the public can start enjoying the work of such culinary artists, these chefs will compete for $1,000 with lake herring entrees that will be judged by three superstars of food: University of Notre Dame executive chef Don Miller, 2011 "Salute" winner Ron Bohnert of Stoneridge Golf Club, and acclaimed Mpls. St.Paul Magazine Editor Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl.

The University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program is hosting the event as a way to celebrate Minnesota history and the people continuing to manage, harvest, study and prepare Lake Superior's commercially harvested fish. Sponsors include Dockside Fish Market, Mpls. St.Paul Magazine, and the Minnesota Zoo's Fish Smart Program.

A "Fish Bus" will carry North Shore residents from Duluth to the event in Minneapolis and back for $10. Call 218-726-8106 or visit www.seagrant.umn.edu/fisheries/salute to reserve your Salute tickets ($20 each) and, if needed, a seat on the Fish Bus.
