Extract from Billingsgate website:
Do not miss the chance to gain a fascinating insight into the working kitchen of one of the top 12 Livery Companies. Executive Head Chef at Fishmongers' Company, Steve Pini, will be delivering his fish cookery day, based on his cook book.
This is a very special day and a treat for all seafood lovers. It would also appeal to anyone who is interested in the history of a livery company in the City of London .
The day starts at 6.15am at Billingsgate market. Fishmongers' Company market inspectors will lead an educational market visit, discussing species identification and quality assessment across the massive variety of seafood available at the market.
After the tour the group is then escorted back to Fishmongers' Hall in the City. (weather permitting the transfer from Canary Wharf to London Bridge is by water taxi). On arrival at the Hall, attendees are treated to a champagne breakfast with bucks fizz and smoked salmon with scrambled egg by served by Fishmongers' Hall butlers.
The rest of the morning is spent watching Steve prepare a selection of dishes (recipes taken from his book). Steve offers his expert advice and his hard earned ‘tricks of the trade' at ever stage to help individuals take these skills back to their own kitchens. This is a demonstration only course.
Before lunch where possible the group are given a short guided tour of the Hall.
The dishes that Steve prepared in the morning are butler served for lunch in one of the elegant banqueting or dining rooms at Fishmongers' along with wines to compliment the dishes. The day closes after coffee
(The Fishmongers' Company Cook Book is available on the day for £35.00)
