Half Day Meat or Fish Cookery Masterclass

Learn to expertly prepare both round and flat fish, or how to get the best from a cut of meat with a fantastically informative, hands-on cookery masterclass in Exeter.

Price for 1 participant

Fish and meat involve a number of tricky culinary skills that can take time to get a grip on, but if you get it right you can create the most delicious gourmet masterpieces. The Half Day Meat or Fish Cookery Experience in Exeter gives you the choice of two highly informative and enjoyable classes, teaching you valuable skills and techniques that you can replicate at home.

If you choose to perfect your meat and butchery skills, you'll spend two and a half hours learning basic butchery techniques and how to work with less common cuts of meat, producing a delicious range of dishes from herb crusted roast rack of lamb to confit leg of chicken. You'll learn all there is to know about making your own stock, pan searing, resting cooked meat, seasoning, and the all important presentation. If you go for the fish cooking course, the day will start with an introduction to the different types of fish, focussing on round seabass and flat brill. The skills you'll learn whilst working with these fish are transferable to most fish, so particularly valuable when increasing your culinary repertoire! You'll cook tasty pan-fried seabass with sautéed ratte potatoes, steamed seabass with ginger and pak choi, and fragrant brill gouchons with rapeseed oil aioli - a truly indulgent half day of cooking!

Both classes teach incredibly useful techniques that you can use time and time again, perfect for impressing at dinner parties! The Half Day Meat or Fish Cookery Masterclass makes a wonderful experience gift for budding chefs, or those who love to learn new things!
