Belfast Cookery School holds free fish class for families


Prawn chorizo frittata 

A free class aimed at teaching parents and their children how to prepare seafood is heading to Belfast Cookery School next week.

The class has been organised as part of Fish is the Dish's latest initiative, 'Back to School', which is encouraging more people to eat the recommended two portions of seafood each week.

It takes place on Friday 16 February; with the half day course open to parents and children aged eight and up. It has been designed by MasterChef winner Jane Devonshire and registered dietician Juliette Kellow, along with Belfast Cookery school's expert chefs. Parents and children who take part will learn how to fillet, prep and serve different species of fish and will be taught a range of delicious recipes to try at home.

The programme was launched after a survey revealed that 85% of parents in the UK aren't eating enough fish, while a quarter of parents say that knowledge of how to prepare and cook fish stops them eating seafood-based dishes at home.
