Great Food News! Shelsky's To Host Monthly Tastings

If you haven't discovered Shelsky's on Smith Street yet, you have been missing out.  But don't worry, because owner Peter Shelsky  just came up with a compelling reason for everyone to stop by his amazing store to sample his wonderful smoked, cured and pickled fish, salads and bread.
Peter writes:
"Starting next Monday, November 21st, we are doing monthly tastings in the evening from 6-9PM in the store at 251 Smith Street.  We will open our doors in the evening for people to taste many of our smoked fish and pickled offerings in the form of hors d’oeuvres and canapés.  The cost is $20/person if they reserve in advance, or $25 at the door.   I just want to create these really lovely evenings so people can get acquainted with Shelsky’s and what we have to offer, and maybe give our present customers the opportunity to taste some items they haven’t yet tasted.  We are going to make it an evening of teachable moments with me discussing the different fish, how they are prepared, and even a salmon slicing lesson.  Further down the road, I hope to bring in people from our suppliers to discuss the process of smoking."
Count me in, Peter!
In the future, Peter is hoping to get a temporary liquor license to be able to offer bubbly with the tastings.  It doesn't get any better than that, I say.  Count me in!
To reserve in advance, call Sheslky's at 718 855 8817 or stop by the store.
