Bringing Back Real Food

Seafood Masterclass

Join Loaf and fish expert Lap-fai Lee for a hands-on day of learning the art and science of fish and shellfish preparation and cookery. Many people are scared of fish preparation when it’s something that our parents and grandparents did routinely. This six hour workshop aims to take the fear out of fish and give you the knowledge and skills to go home and start enjoying preparing fish in your own kitchen. It’s actually pretty quick, easy and fun when you know how!


During the course you’ll learn about and prepare

  • Round fish like mackerel, seabass or bream
  • Flatfish like lemon sole and turbot
  • Squid
  • Prawns
  • Mussels or clams
  • Live crabs or lobster (subject to availability)



Using the freshest possible fish and shellfish from Birmingham’s excellent wholesale and indoor market, you’ll also be introduced to both Asian and European cookery styles and sit down to eat some incredible dishes throughout the day that you will make. Dishes vary according to season and freshness but you can be sure of a fantastic fishy feast.

The course starts promptly at 10.30am and finishes at 4.30pm at Loaf’s high street cookery school on Stirchley High Street in south Birmingham. You’ll feel right at home at Loaf, and everything you learn will set you up for bringing your own kitchen alive.

All refreshments, equipment, recipes and aprons are provided. Use the calendar below to find and book a suitable date and add to your basket, and pay via the checkout. We look forward to seeing you soon!
