Cooking with Fish

On this full day or part-time course (evening / day) you will learn how to prepare and cook a variety of fish.

Cooking with Fish

On this full day workshop you will learn how to fillet fish with plenty of hands on practice. Fish will depend on availability but you will learn to poach (perfectly and simply), pan-fry with restaurant quality crispy skin, cure (perhaps gravad lax), bake (under a perfect and delicious crumb) and steam. We will make sauces and accompaniments for each dish and taste as we go along. We will break for lunch around 1pm with a glass of wine if you wish.
By the end of the day / course you will have learnt how to prepare and cook fish perfectly and simply in a variety of ways that demonstrate clearly how simple it is to cook fish well. You will also know what to look for when buying fresh fish and how to buy the best. We will also have spent time discussing presentation – how to transfer all that care and skill into a dish for the table to be proud of.

Have fun!

Perhaps most importantly, as well as learning new skills, you will have had some fun learning in a relaxed and supportive environment. During the course the emphasis is on using personal taste, judgement and technique rather than slavishly following a recipe. This approach means that one recipe may become two or three recipes. However, a booklet containing the course recipes will be given to you at the end of the day / course.

Everyone has their own set of ingredients sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.

We will stop and eat as we go along so that you taste dishes at their best and we can discuss. There may be food to take home with you, but not always.

The not so small print – please read

It is essential that you wear flat shoes with a closed toe – this is for your safety and comfort, we will be on our feet most of the time.

It is essential when booking that you advise of any accessibility issues, allergies or dietary requirements. Rutland Cookery School is committed to being as inclusive as possible and we will do our utmost to accommodate you but we do need to know in advance.
