Sustainable Seafood

I’ve always been concerned about where the food on our plates comes from.  As readers of this blog will know this is specially true for me with respect to meat, poultry and seafood.   As I was eating my linguine with shrimp (review coming soon) the other day I really started thinking about the shrimp.  After a little research I found a really great resource  here in helping you make smart seafood choices.  Its from the Monterrey Bay Aquarium’s seafood watch site.  Well worth spending a few minutes poking around on.  It goes into great detail on the various species of fish and even differentiates between different methods of catching/farming them within the same species.  They  have region specific pocket guides that are helpful when you are at the store.   If you have a phone with web access their pocket guide for the phone is real handy.  I have it bookmarked on mine.  Enjoy and stay away from the Chilean Sea Bass!

Great Wine Resource

Hey check this out.  Not Frederick specific (again), but it’s a great tasting card developed by a person named Alder Yarrow who runs a San Francisco-oriented wine blog called Vinography.  It’s really handy for those times when you can’t put a word on the taste you are experiencing.  You can print it out and keep it at home for easy reference.
