Holiday courses: Parents and Child Seafood Cookery Days
Cost: £120.00 for 1 adult and 1 child (£20 extra for second child - maximum 2 children per 1 adult)
Our popular family parents/adult and kids days are a good start to the holidays. We create a fun and informative day out for both adults and kids teaching how to prepare and cook a variety of seafood in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
This is also a great introduction to anyone who wants to try to persuade their child to enjoy seafood. We find that once they have had a go at preparing it, they will often taste it too - and then discover that they it love it!
9.30am - 2.00pm approx.
What to Expect
You will start the day with a short introduction, registration and refreshments. The group will be divided into 2 teams. Each team will spend some of the morning learning how to prepare seafood: sardines, mackerel, skinning fish and preparing squid. The second part of the day you spend preparing some recipes. Some of the dishes can be enjoyed for lunch and some ready to take away. Dishes are likely to include : Smoked Mackerel and Fromage Frais Dip, Plaice and Prawn Gratin, Herby Crusted Salmon (pin boning, skinning), Demonstration of Seafood Stir-fry and Sesame Basted Barbecued Sardines (depending on the weather!)The dishes are served for lunch with beer or wine for adults and soft drinks for children.
Who should attend
Anyone who would like a learning day with their child. It gives an opportunity to encourage children to eat more seafood. We aim to make sure everyone goes home (both adult and child) with some new skills and experiences.
We open this class to children from 7 years up. If we have a diverse age range we often divide the group into two teams.
Children can only attend this day if accompanied by an adult.
What you take home
Some of the fish that you prepare is enjoyed for lunch. The rest you take away for supper.
Recipe booklets with recipes cooked during the morning.
