Celebrity chef Dan Churchill, an Australian-born aficionado of good eating and healthy exercise, will deliver the keynote address on the future of fish at the second annual meeting of the Association of Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers (GAPP) on Oct. 12.
Churchill, now a New York restaurant chef, has appeared regularly on network television’s Good Morning America and on The Food Network, reaching an audience in excess of 10 million people.
“I personally love seafood in general because of how versatile – and nutritious – it is,” Churchill said. “Seafood is a protein that can be cooked in so many ways and can take on a wide array of flavors and is seen in nearly every cuisine on earth. With Wild Alaska Pollock, you get most importantly a super tasty fish that is easy to cook with and without a doubt one of the most sustainable fish out there to harvest. Wild Alaska Pollock understands and respects the great need we face to improve our food systems and especially one of our most valuable resources, our ocean waters.”
The event, to be held virtually, aims to bring together GAPP’s members, associate members and others in the Alaska Pollock industry to get updates about GAPP’s strategic plan and hear speakers about the state of the industry.
Registration is free and online at us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_JvFh4PdXR4Ga7tLhujiXLg.
Churchill has partnered with GAPP and the wild Alaska Pollock industry for a couple of years through GAPP’s North American Partnership Program, to raise awareness about the nutritional value of the fish and to by American Seafoods, Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, Clark Nuber, Glacier Fish Company, Golden Alaska Seafoods, Starbound, Sysco Seattle, Trans-Ocean Products, and UniSea.
