Affordable seafood with Riddle & Finns

  Wednesday 10 Nov 2021

  10:30 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, before you sit down to enjoy your lunch together. At this class you will create a menu of:

  • home made smoked mackerel pâté
  • pan-fried local squid with parsley & lemon or chilli & chorizo
  • deep-fried calamari with citrus mayonnaise or tartare sauce

The low-cost places on this class are available thanks to Patrick from Riddle & Finns generously donating his time for this event. BNFS will also be donating fish and Springs Smokery will be donating the smoked mackerel.
