Versatile, flavorful, healthy, and fast-cooking, seafood is the perfect centerpiece of any meal. It’s also deceptively simple to prepare, making it an ideal ingredient for cooks at all levels of experience. In this hands-on class, you will learn invaluable tips about selecting seafood and preparing delicious dishes at home based on our KitchenPro Series: Guide to Fish and Seafood Identification, Fabrication, and Utilization cookbook. You’ll explore topics such as freshness indicators, handling and storage, fabrication techniques, appropriate cooking methods, sustainability, and nutrition. And using the information discussed in class as your guide, you will then prepare a variety of “local” shellfish and finfish.
As a participant in this class, you will receive a CIA logo apron and a copy of an award-winning CIA cookbook to take home.
Please note that all fish and seafood items fabricated in class will be available for you to take home. Portions will be vacuum packaged using the CIA’s industry-style vacuum system. Ice packs will be provided for travel. Please bring a medium-sized cooler for transport. A cooler is required.
