The River Cottage Cooking Diploma: Next Level
Collection of 12 courses
River Cottage's Executive chef Gelf Alderson teaches you how to cook seafood. Next Level Fish and Shellfish dives into deeper waters where you’ll learn to tackle more difficult seafood recipes such as Crab Bisque and Oysters Rockefeller.
Gelf will tell you more about using sustainable fish and guiding you through sourcing and preparing a broad selection of seafood such as cephalopods (squid and octopus), oysters, raw fish and more. You'll learn some favourite River Cottage recipes including Squid with Pumpkin Seed Satay and plenty of classics, including ceviche, carpaccio (made with bream) and a scallop tartar.
By the end of this course, you’ll have the confidence to cook crab and understand why making it fresh yourself tastes so much better. You’ll also learn how to pick crab meat like an expert and turn the shells into a rich stock which you’ll use as the base for an indulgent crab bisque.
You'll learn how to source, shuck and serve up oysters - including recipes for cooked and baked oysters.
This course really pushes the boat out, giving you a level of skill on par with professional chefs and it will certainly boost your confidence and entice you to be more adventurous with your fish and shellfish cooking and eating.
This course has been approved by the Independent Cookery Schools Association (ICSA), recognising the highest standards of training.
Every student is different but in general we think the whole course will take around 14 hours 20 minutes to complete including:
Your lesson notes will include the full details of the ingredients you'll need, but you will be making fish and shellfish dishes, so you'll need standard kitchen equipment.
