Back by popular demand, sustainable seafood advocate Alton Brown joins us for a third time at Cooking for Solutions. Our new Coastal Living Pavilion venue will allow Alton fans to spend a full hour with the Good Eats guru, as he takes on saving the oceans one bite at a time. Sustainable Seafood 101 with Alton is sure to be as entertaining as it is informative.
P. Allen Smith is best known for his Garden Home show. His Farm to Table presentation in the Pavilion will focus on the heritage poultry that Allen raises sustainably on his own farm, and the seasonal garden produce he grows (and hopes you might grow, too). His good friend and fellow Southerner, chef Regina Charboneau, will also be doing a cooking demonstration with all of these sustainable goodies.
Nathan Lyon brings his high-rated PBS show “Growing a Greener World” to the Pavilion on Sunday. Nathan is best known for creating simple yet innovative cuisine, using fresh, local ingredients. Nathan will share some of the secrets from his new Discovery show, “A Lyon in the Kitchen.” Find out how you can get the best out of fresh.
Daily admission to the Aquarium is included with your Pavilion ticket, including full access to the weekend’s Sustainable Foods Celebration. Out on the Great Tide Pool deck you can enjoy cooking demos and talks by celebrity chefs Sam Choy, Mark Dommen and Lee Richardson; try tastes of wild Alaska salmon, fresh fruits and veggies at the Whole Foods Marketplace, with Kids Zone. Inside the Aquarium, sustainable vendors and growers will share their stories as you browse their booths.
