Feb. 9: Sausalito Herring Festival at Cass Gidley Marina


As Bubba once said, “Herring is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it. There’s herring-kabobs, herring Creole, herring gumbo. Pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple herring, lemon herring, coconut herring, pepper herring, herring soup, herring stew, herring salad, herring and potatoes, herring burger, herring sandwich. That, that’s about it.” While I might have gotten that slightly wrong, come find the real story on this delicious, nutritious fish at the Sausalito Herring Festival. Taste the action from the best chefs around, plus music and general merriment. The festival happens on Sunday Feb. 9, Gabrielson Park, Sausalito. 11am. Free. 877.809.1659
