July 17, 2020 

By Abby Rogerson, WSG Student Assistant 

A classic New Haven-style pizza from Connecticut features freshly shucked littleneck clams atop a crust brushed with olive oil, garlic, and herbs. In our PNW version, we infuse the olive oil with the garlic and herbs first, add some mozzarella, replace the clams with smoked oysters, and throw some spring greens on top for good measure.

May 8, 2020 

By Abby Rogerson, WSG Student Assistant 

Blackened whitefish wrapped in a warm homemade tortilla is delicious in its own right, but a squeeze of lime, dollop of smashed avocado, and a couple pickled jalapeño slices really take these tacos to the next level. Rockfish is a great staple for blackening, but other species such as black cod (also called sablefish) and lingcod work well here too. 

Rockfish, black cod, and lingcod are ...
