THE COOKERY SCHOOL

WHERE Cookery School at Little Portland Street, London (cookeryschool.co.uk)

THE COURSE The Ultimate Fish and Shellfish (one day), £195, including breakfast, coffee and lunch with wine and dessert

TESTED BY Isabella Bradford

WHAT IT’S LIKE Cookery School at Little Portland Street is a spatula’s throw from London’s Oxford Circus, split over two floors of a narrow building. The kitchens are sleek, professional-looking and minimalist, but with all the KitchenAid appliances you could dream of. The classes of 10-12 students take place at individual prep stations on steel workbenches. I’ve always wondered what it must be like to be a chef, so when I arrived I was excited to see the restaurant-style working environment – everything stainless-steel and shiny clean. I put on my apron eagerly and mingled with the other students.

WHAT I LEARNED When it comes to cooking fish at home I lack a bit of confidence. Like most Brits I tend to avoid anything more adventurous than the ‘big five’ (cod, haddock, tinned tuna, salmon, prawns) as the prep has usually already been done, so I was keen to get stuck in and extend my fishy horizons. We spent the first hour watching teacher Carolina (see right) prepare a huge array of seafood, carefully explaining how to get around the tricky bits, before we got to practise ourselves.
