Half Day Fish Course

Thursday May 9 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm

Cornwall and fish are like…. salt & pepper, cheese & tomato, bacon & eggs… you get the point! You can’t have one without the other.

This half day course gives you a wonderful insight into fish and how to get the most out of it. There has been a real interest in fish cookery since the recent programmes about Cornwall’s fishing industry and how vital it is to the local economy. So we, as locals or holiday makers, are crucial in supporting it, therefore you may as well know how to cook it and what is in season and when!

Focusing around the cooking of various local species and a little bit if mongery, you will leave full of confidence and ready to find a local fisherman to haggle with!

Course Overview
