What to Expect
The day starts with an early morning visit of the market with our team looking at species ID and quality assessment, followed by a Jugged Kipper breakfast.
There will be a short talk about technical aspects of preserving fish and preparation of seafood for smoking followed by a hands-on seafood preparation session.
After coffee we then move onto smoking seafood and these will be served with a number of dressings and sauces. A number of dishes will be prepared as part demonstration and part hands on, these could include: Gravadlax (salmon), Rollmops (herrings) Ceviche (Razor clams or scallops) and Escabeche (seabass). Some of these will be enjoyed for lunch with a glass or wine and some to take away.
We will also cover the making of Gravadlax (Salmon), Ceviche (Scallops and Razor Clams), Rollmops (Herring). Salted and dried fish (Salted Pollock) use will be included.
A demonstration on how to carve a side of smoked salmon will also be included.
