My daughters & I attended the fish masterclass this afternoon - courtesy of a Christmas present from my husband - it was absolutely excellent.
We were welcomed by Stewart who explained the format & throughout our 3 hours plus was always available to provide drinks, help with cooking etc. Like all the members of staff his attitude was extremely helpful & supportive.
Ian, the chief chef was an excellent teacher - not only did we learn the rudiments of filleting brill and monkfish & prepping squid but he also chipped in with extra useful cooking tips, always answering any queries in a helpful manner.
After showing us how to prep the fish he invited participants to have a go & reminded and advised along the way.
When the fish was prepped he then showed us how to cook it & served it with accompaniments for us to taste - yum.
We then proceeded to cook our starter of mussels in a fennel, wine & cream sauce at our own stations after a masterclass by Ian. It was absolutely delicious.
The same was the case for our main of fillet of hake, baked in a crumb of panko & Parmesan served on a ragu of cockles & mussels topped with a langoustine.
This was our first visit to The Belfast Cookery School & all three of us are looking forward to returning for other classes.
Thank you to all the team for a superb experience which just happened to coincide with Mother's Day.
