6:30pm to 8:30pm

An avid fisherman, home cook, and veteran surfer, Ben Sargent has been mesmerized by fishing since childhood, and he catches almost everything he eats. Whether you fish or not, Sargent's debut cookbook, THE CATCH: Sea-to Table Recipes, Stories, and Secrets, is the perfect book for cooking simple, delicious fish and shellfish. Sargent, also known as "Doctor Klaw," or the guy in Brooklyn behind the Underground Lobster Pound where he served lobster rolls out of his basement apartment, shares his fascinating stories and favorite sea-to-table recipes collected from his adventures, and teaches home cooks how to make all of his seafood favorites.

Come hear his tales and see Ben break down a whole halibut and make it into a delicious meal straight from his book. Plus Ben will be sharing some of his stories and what makes him Brooklyn's go to guy for cooking seafood and sustainable seafood resources. Guests will get the chance to taste samples of the Blueberry Summer Halibut with Harissa Sauce and sip some cold beers care of the Brooklyn Brewery. After you see Ben's handy work in the kitchen you will be able to purchase a copy of THE CATCH: Sea-to Table Recipes, Stories, and Secrets signed by the chef and author.
