Due to popular demand, we present our advanced fish course.

This is a hands on course where you prepare, cook and eat four fantastic fish dishes. You'll be filleting and pin boning your way through mackerel, brill, plaice and sea bream; then each fish will have it's own specific cooking method and garnish to bring out the best of the day's catch.

Complete Fish and Seafood
Friday 10th June 2016
9:30am - 3.30pm

For fish and seafood lovers, this course is a must as we take the fear out of fish preparation and cookery.

You will cook impressive dishes that we are certain you will repeat time and time again. Looking at a selection of fish and shellfish we'll help you to identify species and recognise the freshest fish, giving you confidence at the fish counter to select for yourself. During the hands-on morning, you will see how to fillet a flat and a round fish, prepare shellfish and cook with different methods, all paired with a variety of sauces and sides to complete your dish. Starting with an Asian-inspired crispy sea bass, you'll move on to scallops with chorizo and butter beans and to finish the day, a french classic steamed sole, brown butter, capers with brown shrimps.  Enjoy all your dishes with your fellow chefs over a glass of wine.
