Course Overview for One Day Shellfish & Seafood Cookery Course

Shellfish and Seafood Cookery Course

Devon is the UK’s only county with two coastlines. Consequently, wherever you start from, you’re never more than 35 miles from the sea! Which means we get the pick of the crop when it comes to fresh sustainable seafood.

Whether it’s mussels from Exmouth, oysters from Salcombe, or crabs, prawns and scallops from the pristine waters of Start Bay, we have access to some of Britain’s finest.

So, how to do it all justice? Come with us on a trip around the two-coast county and learn to select, prepare and cook a variety of maritime fauna and create some classic and modern seafood dishes.

These are examples of the kind of dishes you could be making

  • Tian of Crab with Granny Smith Apple, Lime Vinaigrette, Tomato Concasse

  • Spaghetti Vongole

  • Moules a la Creme

  • Mouclade

  • Seafood Bisque with Rouille Croutons

  • 21st Century Prawn Cocktail

  • Oysters with Devon Cider Sabayon
