Fish to Food course @ Billingsgate - for Primary Schools
An opportunity for children to take part in a course delivered at the Seafood School at Billingsgate. The children would usually be split into two groups.
One group are introduced to the variety of fish species available and discuss how and where the fish live focusing on the issue of sustainability. A fishmonger will demonstrate how fish is prepared ready for cooking and identify the parts of the fish.
The second group help to prepare a selection of recipes focusing on the health benefits of eating seafood and the ease and speed of cooking. All the dishes prepared are shared in a tasting session.
The groups swap over so the children take part in both sessions.
