“Well appointed, brilliantly staffed and imaginatively taught, I wish every day was a school day!” The Guardian

Why we love it

As the famous pioneer, Alexander Graham Bell, once said, ‘Before anything else, preparation is the key to success’. Without a prepared environment, a kitchen is just another open space. But, armed with the right tools, skills and techniques, it can become a place of artistry. Boning, stuffing, skinning, filleting and carving – you have the opportunity to master it all and create a meat or fish feast, fit for a king.

What's Included?

  • Experience a six-hour Meat & Poultry or Fish & Shellfish Masterclass for one at Cookery School at Little Portland Street
  • Discover the difference between various cuts of meat, sustainable sourcing and how to prepare the most beautiful pieces of meat (take home a boned and stuffed chicken ready to cook)
  • Or learn how to source fish responsibly before preparing it like an expert with hands-on demonstrations
  • Taste what you have prepared by making a meat or seafood feast, with complementary wines
  • Receive an emailed pack of the recipes you made during the class

Description

The idea of preparing a whole fish or chicken for a meal can be rather intimidating and as a result, there are many parts that often go unused, leaving some of the best bits to be thrown in the garbage. During this masterclass, the emphasis is on minimal wastage and maximum flavour.

Cookery School prides itself on sustainable learning. While they appreciate that fish, meat and poultry are a part of the dinner table for most households, they ensure that responsible sourcing is first and foremost. The fish and meat used is always seasonal, line-caught or locally farmed. In addition to learning to cook beautiful dishes, the expert chefs will teach you how to judge freshness, and tell the difference between organic and inorganic ingredients.

Whether choosing meat and poultry or fish and shellfish, your six-hour masterclass will take you on a journey from farms and sea right to the dinner table. For meat and poultry, you’ll learn about different cuts of meat, various techniques such as boning and stuffing and which cooking method creates the most succulent meat. You will also learn how to use a chicken four ways so that no part of the bird is wasted. Using the beautiful chicken stock produced during the session, you’ll make a risotto using seasonal vegetables.

For fish and shellfish, you’ll learn where to source the best seafood and how to judge its freshness. You’ll be shown how to prepare it, using the relevant knife skills to help you to correctly fillet and gut a fresh fish, or ready your shellfish for cooking. You’ll then discover a variety of cooking techniques, such as grilling, steaming, poaching, baking and sautéing.

The class starts with either a snack or a breakfast of freshly baked treats, depending on the time of day, and ends with a feast of flavours as you tuck into the dishes you’ve prepared. On completion of your day, you’ll receive an email with a comprehensive description of each technique used, as well as the recipes of your meat or fish feast.
