Sunday, January 27th at 6:00pm - The Dinner

Introducing TALKING FOOD AT 1900, a new 3-part series at 1900 aimed to engage, challenge and educate on a variety of topics in the food world. Our first dialogue will be all about the world of "AQUACULTURE: the rearing of aquatic animals or the cultivation of aquatic plants for food."

We are thrilled to welcome to 1900 Building and The Restaurant at 1900, Christopher Haatuft, Executive Chef of Lysverket in Bergen, Norway, and Magdalena Wallhoff, a veteran of the aquaculture industry.

On Saturday, January 26th, Christopher and Magdalena will lead a discussion about why they do what they do, and the importance of aquaculture in today's evolving food industry. The talk will be moderated by travel/food photographer and writer, Bonjwing Lee. Please reserve your spot for this unique talk, which is free and open to the public - space is limited.

And on Sunday, January 27th, we welcome Christopher into the kitchen at The Restaurant at 1900, where along with Executive Chef Linda Duerr and team, they will present a 5-course meal designed to highlight the aquaculture industry and bring attention its culinary possibilities.
