Seafood, often shied away from and misunderstood, even though we Irish eat approximately 21kg of it a year!
At Cooks Academy our seafood lessons are extremely popular. We take you through the dos and don'ts of seafood, showing you how to buy, prepare and cook the different types of fish.
During this fun and highly informative day we demystify many of the secrets of fish, helping you to pair them with different sauces, and showing you various cooking styles. We work with you throughout the day, demonstrating techniques and helping you to develop them yourself. While you learn the intricacies of cooking seafood, we relate everything we do to a householder's perspective, empowering you to cook these recipes in your own home.
So, if you love seafood and really want to become more accomplished with it, then this course is for you.
"Really loved the fish filleting. The instructions from Eoin are great. He's very articulate and shows confidence in his fish skills and cooking. I loved the abundance of ingredients available to us, we were short of nothing. Overall I had a really good day and feel like I've learned lots!"

"I love to cook so I did the 1 day Seafood course and found it to be great. It's a full day where you get to see demos and also get to try out some of the dishes too. I learned a few dishes that I would never have tried at home and they make it seem so simple and easy. Also had a lovely lunch as well as some food to take home to show everyone else and a few recipes. Great day and really expands your knowledge, I can only imagine what a week long or longer one would do for you!"

"I did the seafood workshop on Saturday with Johann and it was absolutely brilliant - really well organised, lots of lovely food and a great mix of demos and practical hands-on experience. Thanks so much, I bought my chef's knife today and plan on getting some practice in before booking in for another course!"
