Welcome to Rick Stein’s Cookery School, Padstow

My seafood school has been open for nigh on 20 years.  I started it to give the chefs at The Seafood Restaurant a bit more intense training preparing and cooking fish and shellfish. To keep the lecturers, all chefs from the restaurant, gainfully employed I ran a few courses for aspiring cooks, it was an instant success with the public and now it’s hard to find slots for the chefs, but the principal remains the same, teaching by chefs who really know what they’re doing.

But it’s not just about seafood, we do lots of other interesting day courses. Indian Seafood, Far Eastern, Italian, Mexican and of course fish and shellfish to name a few, plus some wonderful patisserie sessions.

See you soon, Rick.
