The Essex Coast Line - Seasonal Fish and Shellfish

Duration: 1 Day

This new one day cookery experience will teach you how to make the most of the wonderful array of fish and shellfish caught on the Essex coastline during July and August. During these two summer months there is an abundance of seafood available including Skate, Sea Bass, Sole, Lobster, Crab and Oysters.

Join Mark David for an inspired day of cooking with the freshest local and in season produce the ocean has to offer and not only will you learn a delicious selection of new dishes, you will pick up lots of useful hint and tips on selecting, preparing and cooking fish and shellfish.

Dishes include:

  • Sea bass fillets with king prawns in a vermouth and dill crème fraiche sauce
  • Dover and Lemon sole fillets grilled and served with sautéed dill gnocchi
  • Lobster thermidor
  • Local oysters, raw and cooked
  • Skate with black butter and capers
  • Homemade bread
  • Perfect hollandaise sauce 

The day begins at 9.30am and we invite you to join us with a welcome tea or coffee in the cookery school’s dining room from 9.00am, where you will have a chance to meet your fellow delegates and chef. Your chef will talk you through the class menu and how the day will run before you are assigned a workspace in our fully equipped kitchen, overlooking the beautiful estate at Braxted Park. The step-by-step tuition is fun and easy to follow and the cookery school team will be available to assist you throughout the day.

At the end of a full day of cooking, everyone’s efforts will be rewarded with a glass of wine and a sit-down meal that has been cooked during the day, where hints and tips can be shared with the group while enjoying the food that you have prepared.

Please note that the dishes listed may vary due to the availability of fresh produce as a result of seasonal changes.

Please note Children over the age of 8 years old are welcome to attend and participate in any of our classes at the full cost of a place but MUST be accompanied by 1 paying adult.
