Fish Shellfish Cooking Course London

In this enlightening fish cooking course you will learn how to choose, prepare and cook the freshest sustainable fish and shellfish. Along with the best restaurants in London, Cookery School is at the forefront of ensuring that cooking fish will not deplete our oceans. The fish we use are always seasonal, line-caught and local and we are the only cooking school in the UK to gain MSC certification.

During this intensive fish cooking course, you will master techniques such as skinning, filleting and boning. You will also learn the most appropriate methods of cooking various fish and shellfish, including grilling, frying, baking, poaching and steaming. We will make a range of beautiful accompanying sauces, including hollandaise, tartare, gooseberry, green salsa and a fresh chilli sauce.

In the morning we will welcome you with a breakfast of freshly baked goods and a choice of our wonderful Has Bean coffee or Tregothnan tea. The session ends with a feast around the Cookery School table, accompanied by matched wine, tea or coffee, and dessert. You will leave us feeling confident about cooking fish and shellfish at home.
