During the winter, I’m grateful for the extra heat of the oven after lunch or dinner.  I usually leave the oven door open until it reaches room temp.  However, come Summer, or even Spring for that matter, I will start looking for alternative ways to cook without having to combat the heat of the oven for the rest of the day.  Ceviche may be the simplest of them all.  Ceviche is a method of cooking fish or seafood in citrus juice alone –without heat.  It doesn’t produce the flaky fish you get from the oven, but if you’re a fan of sushi, you’ll love ceviche.  This next Call is all about Aternative Techniques.  I can’t wait to see this exhibit…

Check out this Call from L.A. Photo Curator (online) for the Alternative Techniques exhibit. $20 entry, no shipping, plus art publication for ALL entrants.   Entry fee is $20.  Take a look…
