Sally and "Cap'n Mike" Hiebert, Cap'n Mike's Holy Smoke

Saturday, May 19, 2018 - 10:30am to 11:15am

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and highlighting one of our market sellers.

Before the salmon called him, Cap’n Mike was a Methodist minister and pastoral counselor. In the late 1980s he moved to Bodega Bay and became a licensed sea captain, catching and smoking King Salmon. He smokes all his fish in the time-honored tradition of the Pacific Northwest, slowly over Alderwood fire in a smoker he custom-made. Along with vacuum-packed fish to take home, Sally and the Cap’n created the San Francisco lox sandwich business, making lox sandwiches, soups, and salads to eat at the market on Saturdays.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
