Monthly ‘Cooking With Andy’ evenings start in November

By Staff | Sep 11, 2009

As part of the Greater Pine Island Chamber of Commerce’s Creative Coast Weekends, Andy’s Island Seafood will be holding its second season of cooking classes and other activities from November 2009 through April 2010.

If you missed last year’s “Cooking With Andy” evenings, you’ll want to reserve your space early so you don’t miss this year’s all around good time. Classes will be held on Friday evenings at 7 p.m. on Nov. 13, Dec. 11, Jan. 8, Feb. 12, March 12 and April 9. Cost is $25 per person and includes food and wine.

Net proceeds will benefit the Animal Refuge Center (ARC) and the Clinic for the Rehabilitation Of Wildlife (CROW). There will also be wine and cheese tastings and even adoptable pets on several of these Saturdays. Check our Web site for more details and dates: www.andysislandseafood.com.

Andy’s Island Seafood is a market in the historic fishing village of Matlacha with the freshest local seafood, gourmet cheeses, artisan breads, along with Andy’s celebrated jumbo lump Crabcakes and chowders, fine wines and imported beers. Andy’s Island Seafood has a Mobile Market that takes the seafood on the road delivering its freshest catches to Captiva Island and other Southwest Florida locations.

Andy’s sells sustainable seafood with no preservatives or chemicals, uses eco-friendly containers and sells insulated bags as substitutes for plastic in an effort to save our oceans. Customers ordering a fish sandwich can watch the fillet go from the fish case to the oven to their plate in 20 minutes and taste what a really fresh fish sandwich is like. A limited yet exceptional menu is offered from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to take home or eat outside.

Andy’s Island Seafood Mobile Market visits the Captiva Island Store on Andy Rosse Lane on Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call 472-2374 for additional details.
