Learn all you need to know to prepare delicious shellfish and seafood dishes in this Masterclass!
Home cooks and gourmet enthusiasts with a passion for ‘fruit de mer’ will be inspired by this class which focuses exclusively on fish and shellfish. Working with whole fish and seafood can be quite intimidating—and quite rewarding. Come join us for a full day of learning how to select, clean, prepare and cook several different types of shellfish and seafood.
During the day you will learn the techniques of scaling, gutting, skinning and filleting and how to identify the freshest fish. You will learn how to work safely with shellfish, from how to open oysters to how to prepare fresh crab and scallops to perfection.
We will be cooking classic dishes alongside contemporary recipes using the best locally-caught fish & seafood, whilst also preparing and serving them up with the perfect accompaniments.
