A Crab and Seafood Tasting at the James Beard House

I have always loved seafood - wild caught, natural and sustainable seafood is delicious and a great source of protein and nutrients.

Not long ago, I attended an Alaska Crab and Seafood Tasting at New York City's James Beard House. The tasting was hosted by Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute and the Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers. During the event, we learned about Alaska’s dedication to sustainable seafood, what life on an Alaska Bering Sea Crab boat is like, and what it takes to harvest some of the best crab in the world. We also had the opportunity to taste the different species of Alaska crab – king, snow and Dungeness - to get a better understanding of the various flavor profiles. And, we sampled an array of wild Alaska crab and seafood appetizers, followed by Alaska King Crab Bisque and an Alaskan Crab Boil. 

Here are some of our photos - enjoy.
