Learn How to Prepare Seafood
On Wednesdays, when the restaurant is closed, you can spend the day with Mark perfecting your seafood skills. Highlights of the course include how to detect fish at their optimum prime, how to prepare and fillet flat and round fish and how to prepare and cook live crab, lobsters and scallops. You’ll also learn the secrets to making a good fish stock, Court Bouillon, fish cream sauce and Hollandaise sauce. Best of all, everyone sits down to a three course meal with wine and goes home with all the fish you’ve prepared together with stocks, sauces and a dossier of recipes.

Sadly, not a doggy day out for me. Hopefully you’ll bring me back a lovely souvenir.
