What to Expect

An early morning tutored visit of Billingsgate when the market is in full swing. After our legendary market breakfast there is a short talk on the equipment used during the course and essential knife care to ensure safe handling. A 5 hour hands-on practical fish and shellfish preparation session learning many of the essentials for preparing seafood at home. Species are likely to include: a number of round and flat fish including plaice, gurnard, bass, trout, coley and sole along with cuttlefish and shucking oysters. The trainer will also demonstrate the preparation of crab. There is NO cooking on this course, but advice (and notes) will be given on cooking, storage and freezing.

Perfect for all amateur fishermen wanting to learn or improve their knowledge of fish and shellfish preparation. It is also great for a home cook who is faced with preparing fish straight off the rod and line.

What you take home

Can I buy fish?
