About your day
Tim’s Fish Cookery Course will take place at Seasoned Cookery School on the Catton Estate. Although miles from the sea we don’t let this be a hinderance for sourcing amazing sustainable seafood from small fisheries that are located on the Devon coast, close to where Tim is based.
Throughout the day our team of “kitchen fairies” will look after all of the washing up, preparation of your equipment and food so that you can focus on enjoying the day.
We provide an apron for the day and recipes for you to take home. During the day you will break for lunch to enjoy the dishes that you have created.
Our day courses run from 10.15am to 4pm. Join the team for early morning refreshments from 10am.
