Saturday Breakfast and Seafood Preparation


What better way to start the weekend - but a morning at the Seafood School situated above the iconic Billingsgate Seafood Market.

Join us at the school at 7am to register and a brief talk above the market and discussion about market operation.Explore the market on your own and make extra purchases if you would like stock up. Return to the Seafood School for a 'fish' breakfast and refreshments. After breakfast spend 75- 90 minutes prepare the designated species on the day. This course is hands-on seafood preparation only with NO cooking, although we will give you lots of information about the seafood prepared and how to STORE/FREEZE AND COOK IT.

Take away the seafood you have prepared with a recipe with a full description on how to complete the dish at home.
