Billingsgate Market is the largest shellfish market in the UK AND has an excellent selection on offer from all around the globe and we work with as many species as we can during this informative course. If you have a passion for shellfish or want to learn just how easy it is to prepare and cook - this is the course for you.

Working with CEO, CJ Jackson and the chef trainers, you will learn how to prepare a range of crustacean and molluscs, learning how easy it is choose, store, prepare and cook a wider selection of shellfish. We always discuss sustainability issues, the challenges fishermen face, nutritional values of seafood - the works - if we can't answer a question - we will find the answer for you!

We aim to cover as many aspects of shellfish preparation as possible (depending on season and availability). Expect mussels, clams (palourde and razors), scallops and oysters along with crab and a lobster tasting.

The day kicks off at 6am with a quick cup of tea or coffee and registration. We talk about the history of the market and how it has developed over the last 100 years whilst we take you on a guided visit around the trading floor.
We cover all as many aspects as we can, looking at species identification and how to assess quality of the many species available on the day (this can be well over 120!)

After a 90 minute look around you will return to the kitchen for a cooked fish breakfast and a chance to reflect on what you have seen.

We then roll up our sleeves and work through the many species we have purchased for the day.

We aim for you to take away your own Dressed Crab, Cuttlefish Marinated Salad and a selection of other shellfish you have prepared during the day. We will also cook some for you to taste including crayfish, Dublin Bay prawns, native AND Canadian lobster. We often serve our dishes with seaweeds and aim to be innovative and show how easy it all is to replicate it at home
