Show 109, February 7, 2015: Slapfish Chef/Owner Andrew Gruel

Slapfish Fish and ChipsWe now have a chance to catch-up with Chef Andrew Gruel of Slapfish, today’s Guest Host. This last week they just launched their new Newport Beach location at 2727 Newport Boulevard.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is considering a set of rules for organic farmed fish. Several consumer groups, though, say the recommended rules don’t go far enough to meet the strict standards of other organic foods.

There is the complex issue of whether wild caught fish can ever be classified as organic because you can’t control what they eat in the wild. For farm raised fish there is at least the possibility of feeding them certified organic, plant-based feed.

Chef Andrew will weigh-in on this and also speak about sustainability
