Attended the fish day at the school. A fantastic experience from start to finish. The groups are small which means the team can be on hand to help. Karen spent most of the day with our pair, answering any questions and guiding us where need be. Lesley shares some fantastic stories throughout the day too. You really do gain the confidence to no longer be afraid of cooking fish, and what's even better... you eat what you make during the day! So don't make the mistake of having a big breakfast before hand!
I'd truly recommend this class and others to anyone.

Thank Gareth F

Learnt the skills to have the confidence to dress crabs and fillet different fish. Then create easy to prepare dishes with the fish that are tasty and make meals that family and friends will enjoy. Lesley is hand on to share her wealth of experience and with a great team help make it fun and very enjoyable. Eat what you have created and take the recipies home for future use.

Thank you for the great review of our fish day. Lesley is always delighted to know that guests go away and cook the things we cover on the days. I hope your family enjoy your new dishes.
