Event Details

Stoney Lonesome Farm is a family-owned and operated farm located in Gainesville, Va., thirty-five miles west of Washington D.C. A blend of gardens, pasture, forest and ponds, this land provides an ideal setting for diversified food production.

Tom and friends at the farm will welcome workshop attendees for a day of trying your hand at something new! Guests will first learn about how to identify and select fresh fish at the market, along with a brief overview of fish "issues" (sustainability, wild vs. farmed, quality vs. locality, etc.). Guests will then learn how to break down a whole fish, likely using both a round and a flat fish depending on availability. This will be a hands on session (e.g., there will be knives, guests will cut fish, etc.).

We'll then move to a discussion about how to prepare fish, with an eye toward providing a foundation more than specific recipes -- that you can grill, roast, steam, cure, pickle, acidify, etc. We'll prepare a simple cured fish as a demo and then work in trios to prepare a hot meal in the farm's kitchen, using the farm's vegetables and drawing inspiration from the land. We'll conclude with the light supper we've created, a few glasses of wine, and plenty of time to wander and explore the gorgeous farm setting.

Guests will leave with a primer about what to look for in fish; a few sample recipes; a list of suggested local vendors; and more.

**We're going to be outdoors, on a farm, butchering fish. Dress appropriately!
