From those who’ve never cooked with fish or seafood enthusiasts alike, this one day course will teach you the techniques you’ll need to create really impressive fish dishes. Using the freshest fish that is often landed right on the school’s doorstep, we’ll show you how to choose good fish and how to make the very best of it in the kitchen.

A fantastic day. Nick and the team were fantastic. I have really learnt a lot and am inspired to try more dishes at home! My confidence has gone from 2 to 10!
Friendly and good instructors. I’m a pretty good cook but I learnt things of value.
Loved the day, left feeling knowledgeable, confident and full of lovely food.
It was a fabulous course. The recipes were clearly demonstrated. The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone we met went out of their way to make the whole experience wonderful.
A really brilliant day, a perfect mixture of serious cookery demonstrations, good humour, useful tips, excellent food and splendid wine!
