Intro to Fish course at Billingsgate – for Secondary schools

An opportunity for students to take part in a course delivered at the Seafood School at Billingsgate.  The course is particularly suitable for students following a course in Home Economics, Food Technology or Catering

The students are divided into two groups

One group are introduced to the variety of fish species available and discuss how and where fish live focusing on the issue of sustainability.  A fishmonger will demonstrate how fish is prepared ready for cooking and identify the parts of the fish.

After a short introduction the second group prepare a selection of recipes focusing on the health benefits of eating seafood and the ease and speed of cooking. All the dishes prepared are shared in a tasting session.

The groups swap over so the students take part in both sessions.
