Recipe: Tajine of Seafood Chermoula

Michelle Bernstein's recipe for tajine of seafood chermoula

 

One of our go-to resources for seafood recipes is Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, a California-based program that educates businesses, diners, and shoppers about environmentally-minded marine life consumption. The recipes have been loaned by some of America's favorite chefs, including Rick Bayless, Mario Batali, and Alton Brown, so they're guaranteed to become delicious staples in your kitchen. Better still, they're made with species that appear on the aquarium's "Best Choices" and "Good Alternatives" lists, which means your meal will have little to no impact on our oceans' health. Lately we can't get enough of JBF Award winner Michelle Bernstein's contribution to the Seafood Watch collection: a steamy tajine of... Read more >

JBF to be Next GREEN & BLACK’S Inspiring Expert

 

It’s no secret that the James Beard Foundation is fond of GREEN & BLACK’S chocolates. Aside from being completely irresistible (when our supply in the office runs out, it’s considered a serious emergency), the products are crafted from Fair Trade and organic ingredients from around the world, reflecting a visionary commitment to honest and responsible sourcing that took root when the company was founded over 20 years ago. This means that GREEN & BLACK’S  bars are not only delicious, but that there’s a special ingredient, an artisan, or a far-flung locale for their fans to discover behind every flavor.
