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 reluctant (or even scared) to undertake fish preparation – when it’s something that has been part of life for centuries. This six hour workshop takes all of the fear out of fish, and gives you the knowledge, skills and confidence to go home and start enjoying preparing fish in your own kitchen. It’s pretty quick, straight-forward and fun when you know how!
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.
During the course you’ll learn about and prepare:
- Round fish like mackerel, seabass or bream
- Flatfish like lemon sole and turbot
- Mussels or clams
- Live crabs or lobster (subject to season availability).
The course starts promptly at 10.30am and finishes at 4pm 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.
You’ll be eating everything that we make – which is a real feast!
