These days, many people lack the skills to prepare a whole fish or lobster. However, there is something deeply satisfying about creating a meal from scratch - not to mention the health benefits and reassurance of knowing what the ingredients started out life as in these times of nutritionally questionable, highly processed foods.

Billingsgate Seafood Training School, located in the famous market in London’s Docklands, teaches both intrepid amateurs and seasoned professionals the secrets of handling seafood. Learn to treat a fish right (from gutting to filleting then cooking), never again to mix-up a male (white) mussel with a female (orange) and to pick out the freshest catch (bright eyed, firm of flesh and not too smelly). There are a wide-variety of classes to suit all skills and interests, and even courses for parents to bring their kids in on the fun. Lessons are rounded off in the best possible manner - with lunch.
