Explore The Winter Waterman’s Tools,Tastes & Traditions November 9 at CBMM

On Wednesday, November 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, MD will host “Other than Oysters…Tools, Tastes, and Traditions of Watermen in Winter” at its Oystering on the Chesapeake building. The event is free for museum members or $10 for non-members, with space limited and pre-registration needed by November 7.

“Other than Oysters…Tools, Tastes, and Traditions of Watermen in Winter” will focus on the importance of fresh, locally-caught seafood to watermen, the environment, the community, and the consumer.

Participants will explore the tools, tastes, and traditions of the waterman’s wintertime world as they sample, sip, and learn about the bounty of the icy Chesapeake Bay. The event includes samplings of locally-caught seafood with selected wine pairings, and an opportunity to watch and chat with working watermen as they demonstrate their trade.

“We wanted to connect people more directly to the bay and its bounty as well as to the watermen who make seafood available to us as consumers,” commented CBMM Membership Team Leader Debbie Collison. “We also want to educate people about the wide variety of fish and seafood from the Chesapeake, what it takes to harvest it and get the food to your home or restaurant table. We’ll also share how you can you get more use out of any given product.”
