Cooking With Leslie Returns

FISH OF SANCAP is excited to present their second Cooking with Leslie Zoom presentation.  The cooking event will be held on Thurs., July 22 from 2:00-3:00pm and will be offered monthly.  Registration is required.

Tasty recipes will be presented in a cooking class style as participants cook together, virtually, as a group.  Ingredients can be provided, compliments of FISH, and home delivered to those living on Sanibel or Captiva the day of the event, or participants can purchase them on their own with a list provided by FISH.  Recipes are geared toward smaller portion sizes.  This month’s recipe is Pecan Encrusted Salmon, Creamy Risotto, Hericot Vert (French Green Beans) and Mascerated Berries for dessert.  Leslie Adams, chef and owner of Sanibel Captiva Catering, LLC/Catering by Leslie Adams, will lead the cooking lesson.

Adams is the former owner of award-winning Rosie’s Deli on Sanibel. After six years of ownership, Leslie sold the deli to devote her energy and talents as a catering and private chef service. She was trained at The California Culinary Academy in San Francisco and expanded her expertise, techniques, and repertoire by attending classes at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.  She has been a caterer and private chef on Sanibel and Captiva Islands for 14 years.

“Our first session was a huge success, and we are excited to work with Leslie again to offer another cooking experience,” says Susan Alexander, Senior Services and Community Engagement Director, FISH.  “We hope our neighbors will join us for this fun interactive Zoom event where everyone can learn new recipes and beneficial cooking techniques while satisfying their palates.”

Please register no later than July 19, 2021 by contacting Susan Alexander or Manuela Martinez at the FISH Walk-In-Center, 239-472-4775.  Once registered, FISH will provide a link and meeting ID number for access to the Zoom webinar.
