Michael Hutchings of Michael’s Catering: He started his career in the kitchen of Disneyland at the famous private Club 33. He was taught by the Master Chef Rudolph Stoy and worked his way up to become the club’s Executive Chef. He went on to London to work at Le Gavroche, before coming to Santa Barbara to start Michael's Waterside, which was recognized as a leader in contemporary California-French cuisine.
Mossin Sugrich of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club: He is a classically trained chef who attended SBCC Culinary School and helped build the kitchen at Elements, before working as Sous Chef at San Ysidro Ranch. He went on to work at Blush, the Four Seasons and the Belmond El Encanto. Randy Bublitz of SBCC Culinary Arts Program: He has been at SBCC’s world renowned Culinary Arts Program since 1993 and oversees 120 students in the two-year program. He directed SBCC’s first study abroad culinary arts program to Paris, France in 2015, and followed up with a similar program in Rome, Italy this summer.
These chefs will show how to prepare locally caught seafood, which guests will enjoy tastings of along with local wines and craft beers. In addition, guests will meet some of the commercial fishermen who bring the Santa Barbara Channel’s bounty to our plates. Proceeds from this event, including a silent auction, help support programming for both FishSB and the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum.
FishSB is a joint program of Commercial Fishermen of Santa Barbara and the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce that provides critical support for local fisheries to help keep our working waterfront thriving.
