Working with whole fish and seafood can be quite intimidating, and quite rewarding. In this very hands-on class, you'll learn how to choose and clean seafood; properly use a knife to fillet whole fish (for sea bass en papillote); denature raw seafood (for ceviche); cook shellfish in broth (for Thai-style moules marinières); and prepare squid and prawns (for a citrus-forward salad). You can apply these principles when cooking a variety of seafood, knowing exactly what to look for so your dishes are never under- or overcooked.
Age Restriction: 16+
