Sustainable Cooking with Two Oceans Wines & WWF SASSI
October 26, 2011 in Uncategorized
Early in the month of October I attended hosted by Two Oceans Wines and WWF SASSI (Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative) hosted a Cooking and Caring event. Writers, food, beverage and lifestyle bloggers attended the event.
For the benefit of those that do not know, WWF SASSI is an initiative to inform and educate people about the conservation of seafood species and their marine environment. It informs fishers, restaurants and consumers on the type of fishes sustainable to the environment. This informative event made me realise the importance of knowing the marine product you eat, because you might be eating the last product that the environment sustains. To make things easy for the consumer, Two Oceans Wines and SASSI have printed out wallet-sized information cards available at restaurants and retail stores. The booklet will help you identify the sustainable seafood species and the ones you should avoid buying or consuming. For more detailed information please check out the WWF SASSI website.
