“The Bay” is an event curated by Capital Taste Food Group designed to bring awareness to some of the issues the Chesapeake Bay watershed is facing today. The purpose of this event is to educate guests about the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem and some of the threats it faces today, as well as give them a truly special, unique and memorable dining experience.
The topics to be discussed include what some are calling “the greatest threat the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem has ever faced.” This threat is that of invasive species (Species not native to the Chesapeake) in particular the Blue Catfish. The blue catfish sits at the very top of the food chain in the Chesapeake and are threatening the existence of many native species. The estimated population in the Chesapeake today is upwards of 90 million fish. We will involve key speakers who are well versed on the subject of invasive species in the Chesapeake Bay to offer guests first hand experiences about the threat they cause and how it directly effects all of us that call the Mid-Atlantic USA home.
Another topic that we will focus on is the underutilization of our native seafood in the Chesapeake Bay. We have a relatively untapped treasure chest of delicious seafood right here in the Chesapeake Bay. We will feature many of these species in the meal itself and showcase these fish to guests. We will highlight the fact that in the US we import 90% of the seafood that we eat from foreign nations and we export 70% of the seafood we catch in American waters to foreign nations. If we had more of an appreciation for our local bounties we can reduce the carbon being put into our environment from importing and exporting our seafood, we will have a product that is fresher, caught in a way that is responsible and sustainable, and we can support our local economy.
The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States and the third largest such body of water in the World. It is also home to two of the busiest ports in the United States. This is one of the most important bodies of water in the world and we believe these issues are important to discuss in a public form, showcasing the treasures of the Chesapeake Bay itself.
Upon arrival guests will be greeted with cold beer from Flying Dog Brewery, who are leaders in community work and supporting the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and refreshing punch. There will be a “cocktail hour” with freshly shucked oysters and seasonal snacks.
Dinner will be slated to begin with guests sitting down at 7:15 pm. The meal itself will be a collaborative effort between some of DC’s talented young chefs. Dishes will be from Mackenzie Kitburi (the Founder of Capital Taste Food Group) Daniel Perron of Whaley’s, James Martin Ball of Jose Andres’ Oyamel, and Ryan Hackney who chef Mackenzie worked with at Robert Weidmeir’s Marcel’s.
The meal will be 4 courses and have multiple dishes per course, each highlighting seafood from the Chesapeake Bay and only local and seasonal produce. Guests will have an option of a cocktail pairing or a non alcoholic “mock-tail” pairing crafted by Raul Torrento, Capital Taste Food Group’s Director of Beverages. The pairing will highlight seasonal produce, as well as invasive plants in the Chesapeake Bay watershed such as watercress.
All of the seafood for the evening will be provided by Congressional Seafood. Congressional is one of the leaders in fighting the issues in the Chesapeake Bay and was recently featured in the Wall Street Journal in a piece that spoke about the problems of the Northern Snakehead and what chefs are trying to do to fight the problem of the invasive species. The produce will be provided by the farms at Monroe Street Farmer’s Market. This market is run by Community Foodwork’s. This market is only a couple of blocks away from Mess Hall and we are very excited to be able to support local food systems and the Brookland community.
Because of the hyper seasonal and local nature of the meal being curated on June 23rd we do not have a menu ready for print but we will update all of our channels once one is available.
