On this shellfish cookery course, George Pascoe and guest tutor Annie Sibert will take you through the skills necessary to handle, prepare and cook a variety of delicious shellfish dishes.
This is a hands on course where you will be preparing, cooking, sampling and tasting a number of different types of fresh Cornish shellfish from lobster, to scallops and more.
Be prepared to eat each dish as it is prepared by you, all we ask is that you bring enthusiasm and a healthy appetite.
