1-Day Perfect for anyone who loves fish, but is unsure how to cook it correctly
Tutor: Sarah Mellersh

Price per person: £120
Time: 10am to 4pm


This course is perfect for anyone who loves fish, and is looking for some new recipe ideas. As well as learning different cooking methods we will also look at appropriate sauces to go with your fish dishes. Here are the types of things we will cook on the day. Some will be enjoyed for lunch, and some will go home to enjoy with friends and family. All of the dishes we are going to be looking at our firm favourites at the School. 

Here are the types of dishes we will be doing on the course.

  • Keralan Fish Curry - a wonderful coconut based curry with a wee bit of heat. And very quick to make
  • Oven Roast Sole Paupiettes with a Lemon Thyme, Cream and White Wine Sauce
  • Thai Fish Cakes - with dipping sauce - a great starter or canape
  • Salmon Coulibiac - a Russian feast dish. One of the best fish pastry dishes and great for entertaining as can be made in advance. 
  • Two Sauces - Romesco sauce, and almond, and pepper sauce from Catalonia, bit like pesto. So good with fish and chicken and Salsa Verde fab with fish 
  • Pan Fried Bass with a warm salad of chorizo, red onion, cherry tomatoes, and olives (optional!) - great as again the salad can be made ahead and reheated.
Lots to take home and lots to enjoy at the school.

  • All ingredients are weighed out for you in advance, giving you more time to spend on cooking.
  • All washing up done
  • A chance to eat your creations with a well deserved glass of wine. Or a light lunch will be provided if we have not cooked a meal.
  • Any dishes not eaten can be taken away - download our Storage & Reheat Guide:

We will be in contact with you the week before the course starts and will let you know if you need to bring any containers to take home some of the dishes you have prepared.

Happy Customers

We had a great time on the course and have been raving about it ever since. As a 'non cook' I was a little apprehensive about the day but was very quickly put at ease and amazed and what we were able to do during the day whilst having a great laugh. Many thanks for the day which as I say we throughly enjoyed and look forward to booking the next one soon.

I thoroughly enjoyed my day on Saturday, it was hard to believe we’d spent the whole of six hours in the kitchen on a warm day, it really was such a pleasure and all the hassle of cooking was taken away by your preparation and support leaving us with the good bits to do and lots of tips for the future.Whilst I’ve been cooking fish for years this has given me the confidence that I can do so quickly and perfectly – as you emphasised throughout it’s all about technique – while choosing ideal accompaniments. It all seemed a lot easier this week, cooking at home! So thanks so much and I won’t hesitate to come again on another of your many courses.
