In addition to the weekly subscription boxes, on the third Monday of every month, Local I‘a launched a Demo Dinner Series at Kaimukī Superette. Each month the community fishery partners up with a eco-conscious group to teach a new dish.
Ashley Watts, a person with an incredible wealth of knowledge regarding the ocean, fishing practices and sustainability, is originally from Florida, and her first class was a demonstration on how to make her grandmother’s seafood gumbo using the fresh catch of the day: mahi mahi.
Whether you sign up for Local I‘a’s subscription services or not, these monthly cooking demos will inspire you to try new recipes and be more conscious of where our seafood comes from. And that alone may motivate you to sign up for a subscription box anyway.
Note: It’s BYOB so come prepared!
