Fish & Seafood Cookery Courses

As much as people love fish, many of us lack the confidence to deal with both the preparation required and the best techniques for cooking it.

Let us show you how to choose the freshest fish from your local fish market, fillet it with expertise and create delicious seafood & fish recipes step by step guided by our friendly expert teachers.

In this fish and seafood class you will be preparing a colourful and flavour-packed fish and seafood feast which you will dine on at the end of the class, accompanied by free flowing wine.


Got a voucher for my birthday and booked the fish course at Food at 52 and I couldn't recommend it enough!
Great, relaxed atmosphere, amazing teachers and wonderful food! I went on my own but was made to feel very welcome! Very personal, not corporate. Loved every minute!

Join us for a full day of fish and seafood cooking

Because of the strong emphasis on skill building, our fish and seafood cooking classes are longer than our usual classes. They’re usually hosted on Saturdays and finish around 4:30.


I was bought the fish cookery course for Christmas by my husband. It was THE best Christmas present ever. My husband does most of the cooking and whilst I like cooking, I totally lack confidence when it comes to anything above curries, casseroles and one pot meals.
This course entirely changed my approach to cooking. It didn't just give me confidence with fish but that newly acquired seeped through into everything I do in kitchen. I have sent him a subtle hint that I'd like another Food at 52 course this year.
Besides learning a tonne of new skills, I also had an absolutely fabulous day. It was great fun, with wine and chat flowing, great food to make and eat. I just cannot recommend a course here highly enough. The group of people I was with were really mixed ability; from me, shaking with nerves at the idea of having to fillet a fish to people who clearly take their cooking skills very seriously.
