Students focus on fish

January 21, 2020

Professional Cookery students at NESCol’s Fraserburgh Campus are undertaking a two stage masterclass in the preparation and cooking of fish in conjunction with Seafish.
Lecturer Karen Oldman comments, “These masterclasses, funded by Seafish, will highlight to students the variety of fish available to us locally and the versatility of the dishes that can be created.
“Across the two days we will be focusing on sustainable oily and round fish, and will be exploring areas such as handling and storage; fish quality indicators; nutrition; cuts and portions plus touching upon the career opportunities within the seafood industry.”
Seafish has a dedicated consumer seafood site Fish is the Dish which gives seafood-buying customers all of the information they need on the benefits of buying, cooking and eating seafood.
Ian Land, Seafish Scottish Account Manager adds, “This pilot initiative aims to deliver practical seafood masterclasses to those aiming to enter the Hospitality and Food Service sector . We take seafood product sourced from the local market, show how it is filleted and prepared and then cook the same seafood product- seafood that is landed right on your local doorstep- nothing could be fresher and tastier, and so easy to cook, than that. The classes are supported by e-learning online learning tools and resources.”
Professional Cookery classes run at Fraserburgh Campus and applications for the academic year 2020-21 are now open. Why not come along to our Open Day on March 19th at 4-7pm to find out more.
