New for Saturday mornings -
Join us for our new series of webinars to learn a new seafood skill and recipe to prepare and cook in the comfort of your own kitchen.
CJ and Stewart will be on-line via Zoom. Stewart will be master of ceremonies and CJ will prepare the fish in her own kitchen, allowing enough time for attendees to have a go at preparing the fish at home and then follow the making of the dish.
Once you have booked a slot we will send you the recipes and instructions so that you can buy your fish and ingredients and be ready to cut and cook along... and get the family around the laptop to help! We will work with easily accessible seafood selections making it possible for you to order on your weekly shop.
WE WILL CONTACT YOU THE DAY BEFORE EACH EVENT TO CONFIRM ZOOM DETAILS TO ENABLE TO JOIN THE COURSE.
