Half Day Fish Cookery Course

HALF DAY COURSE (9:30am - 12:00pm / 2:00pm - 4:30pm)

Only £65.00 per person inc. VAT


There are essentially two basic types of fish, referred to in the trade as either ‘round’ or ‘flat’. Round fish include seabass, mackerel, cod, mullet, trout, salmon, etc. Flat fish include brill, plaice, turbot, dabs, sole, flounder, et al.


On the Half Day Fish Cookery Course you’ll be preparing typical examples of these two types: seabass and brill. All the techniques you’ll learn whilst preparing and cooking these two fish are virtually the same for all fish of their type.
