Affordable seafood with Riddle & Finns

This event has already run

  Monday 7 Oct 2019

  11:00 am  - 1:00 pm

patrick riddle and finnsLearn how seafood can be a healthy, affordable part of your everyday meals, whether you’re replacing meat or looking to experiment with new ingredients. 

Seafood is low in ‘bad’ saturated fat but high in the ‘good’ omega-3 fatty acids credited with being good for your joints and boosting your brainpower. Packed with vitamins and minerals too, it is a healthy protein alternative to meat.

Yet too often seafood is considered too expensive and too fussy to cook with. This class will show you that neither need be true!

Patrick Timpson from Brighton institution Riddle & Finns will teach you some essential knife skills and tips for seafood preparation. You will start by working with a whole bream, creating fillets which are then pan-fried. Patrick will also demonstrate a ceviche-style preparation for the bream. Then you will learn to clean and cook mussels and clams in cider, try some more knife skills on the accompanying veg, and then sit down to enjoy your lunch together.

The low-cost places on this class are available thanks to Patrick from Riddle & Finns generously donating time and ingredients for this event.
