You might have seen over the weekend that I headed down to the Exeter Cookery School to help them celebrate their first birthday. It was a stonking event which, despite the weather, brought in lots of people all eager to have a peek and eat delicious scones with fresh cream and jam.
A course which is an absolute must for seafood or shellfish lovers is their Shellfish and Seafood Cookery Course. The next one is taking place on the 10th August.
Have you ever wanted to know how to create a bisque or a demi glaze? How about cooking and dressing a crab? Under the expert tutelage of Chef Jim Fisher, you will be armed with the skills and know-how which will allow you to get stuck in yourself.
“Devon is the UK’s only county with two coastlines. Consequently, wherever you start from, you’re never more than 35 miles from the sea! Which means we get the pick of the crop when it comes to fresh sustainable seafood.
Whether it’s mussels from Exmouth, oysters from Salcombe, or crabs, prawns and scallops from the pristine waters of Start Bay, we have access to some of Britain’s finest.
So, how to do it all justice? Come with us on a trip around the two-coast county and learn to select, prepare and cook a variety of maritime fauna and create some classic and modern seafood dishes.
These are examples of the kind of dishes you could be making
- Tian of Crab with Granny Smith Apple, Lime Vinaigrette, Tomato Concasse
- Spaghetti Vongole
- Moules a la Creme
- Seafood Bisque with Rouille Croutons
- 21st Century Prawn Cocktail
- Oysters with Devon Cider Sabayon”
