Piedmont hosts Seasons of the Sea Seasonal Dinners Celebrating Sustainable Seafood

SeasonsOfTheSea_logoLoRes[Durham, NC, February 9, 2016] – As a longtime supporter of small, North Carolina growers, Piedmont has been equally committed to being a good steward of the sea. Relationships with LOCALS SEAFOOD have enabled Piedmont to share fresh-caught fish from North Carolina’s coast throughout the year, and to be advocates for a robust North Carolina seafood economy.

This year, Piedmont invites chefs, fisherman, and organizations supporting sustainable seafood to collaborate with Executive Chef Greg Gettles on multi-course dinners showcasing the diversity and seasonality of fish and shellfish from our coast. This 4-part dinner series will highlight North Carolina’s seafood in Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
