    A great day with Chef Jake all began with a crash course in fish filleting, this set us up for the recipes we would develop through the day. The course methodology was a relaxed and step by step approach, no questions were too small for Jake and I felt we could ask anything I was not clear about or that I may have forgotten from the demonstration.

    My highlight of the day was the Razor Clam recipe, a technical dish that was soooooo tasty washed down with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc in the sunny garden.

    Jake also did some demonstration dishes including an amazing celeriac mash that was served up with the pan fried Bream that we created.

    it was a really enjoyable day, id highly recommend it to anybody interested in cooking fish.

    This was a very enjoyable course, with plenty to learn in a great setting.

    I was able to step outside my comfort zone where the preparation of the fish was concerned, the teacher provided a supportive environment and was quick to help out with any questions.

    The food tasted fantastic, there was enough for my wife to try some of the creations afterwards.

    A set of recipes from the day was provided and I am looking forward to revisiting some of them at home.
