Things are heating up with the launch of our July – October program of classes.
Matt Moran (ARIA), in one of his rare Seafood School appearances, gets things started on 15 July, followed by the Queen of Spice Christine Manfield on 26 July.
Seafood School regulars Alessandro Pavoni (Ormeggio at the Spit), Phil Wood (Rockpool), Shaun Presland (Saké), Mark Jensen (Red Lantern), Hamish Ingham (Bar H), Brent Savage (Bentley), Frank Camorra (MoVida), Justin North (The Centennial Hotel), George Francisco (Roberts Circa 1876), Lucio Galletto (Lucio’s Italian Restaurant) and Damien Pignolet return to share their expertise throughout the program.
There’s a breath of fresh air as some of the young guns arrive at the School to show their moves, with Nomad Exec Chef Nathan Sasi presenting his first class in August, Chase Lovecky from Momofuku Seiōbo and Mike Eggert (Pinbone) in September and Fish Face’s Josh Niland in October.
And who says seafood’s only for summer barbies? A lot of our favourite seafood is actually at its best – and most abundant, therefore least expensive – during the cooler months (think john dory, ocean jacket, farmed barramundi and wild prawns), so you should definitely be including seafood in your winter menus. Our new Winter Warmers class makes its debut this program with three delicious dishes (including dessert, a rarity at the Seafood School) perfect for the cooler months. Plus we have a new class on hearty seafood pies and the ever popular Moroccan, Chilli Crab and Thai are all perfect for adding a bit of heat to cooler evenings.
With so many classes to choose from, cooking class gift certificates are the perfect gift for the hard-to-shop-for-foodies in your life. And if you buy a copy of the Sydney Seafood School Cookbook (RRP $49.99) together with a gift certificate, you save $10.
