What you'll do
Enjoy an indulgent feast of shellfish in this class and dine on exotic and rare Lobster sashimi, a whole crab each, a whole lobster each, prosecco, white wine and all whilst learning skills that will leave you impassioned for the delights of the Cornish Coast. We start with the delicate experience of lobster sashimi with a live demo of the preparation. You will then be introduced hands-on to the techniques and tips of cooking and preparing your own whole brown crab; eating it at its most fresh and delicious. Next, a whole lobster is yours. Again, you'll learn how to cook, prep and pick to indulge completely in this superfresh experience. If it's all too much for one sitting you can take home the rewards of your efforts for a salad or sandwich. This class will spoil you, entertain you and give you the skills and confidence to buy the more exotic seafood that many feel is too fiddly or complicated to prepare at home. *If timing works, we can go to the Harbour together to collect our shellfish fresh and live from the fishermen. This can't always work due to the changing times of the tides but I try my best to accommodate.

Having launched a seafood bar that got to No 1 on TripAdvisor within 3 months of opening, I've decided to share some secrets of the shellfish world. I have fished, cooked & prepped hundreds of lobster & crab & can share everything I've learnt with you. I know our local fishermen in Newquay & work closely with them to source the freshest and most delicious seafood you can get. It's literally straight off the boat. I can teach you all you need to know to feel confident buying, cooking and preparing fresh live shellfish. No part of this precious meat will go to waste when you learn with me
Whole Lobster. Whole Crab
