ASMI launches new site on the Culinary Institute of America’s ProChef website!
The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI), in partnership with the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), announces the launch of a brand new online learning tool available to chefs and foodservice industry professionals. The ProChef website provides in-depth information on how to use delicious and sustainable wild Alaska seafood, utilizing contemporary techniques and global herbs and spices to bring exciting new flavors to your menu.
Along with innovative and flavorful chef-developed recipes (inspired by Latin, Asian and Mediterranean cuisines), this website offers engaging step-by-step recipe demonstration videos by CIA chefs and detailed information on how to prepare and handle the Alaska seafood species (including the five species of salmon, whitefish varieties and shellfish). It also provides an overview of the species, outlining the different flavor profiles and describing the specific harvesting methods.
As consumers become ever more concerned about the environment and the impacts of their food choices, a special feature of the website is an overview of Alaska’s sustainable fisheries management. Plus, an entertaining Market Basket Workshop video offers an opportunity to watch chefs from some of America’s top restaurants prepare Alaska seafood in the state-of-the-art teaching kitchens of the CIA at Greystone in St. Helena, California. Additionally, the ProChef website links directly back to the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute website, for those wanting to learn even more about wild and sustainable Alaska seafood.
