What you'll learn in this fish class:

Fish is one of the easiest proteins to cook, but something that many home cooks fear, when it comes to choosing, storing, and preparing. Join us for our first-ever virtual fish class, so we can pull back the curtain and demystify fish once and for all.

We'll cover: 

  • How to Buy Fresh Fish (wild vs. farm-raised)
  • Pan-Searing: Skin-On vs. Skin-Off
  • Slow Roasting
  • Sauces for Fish

​We'll cook:

  • Fish Fillets with Lemon-Caper Butter Sauce
  • Crisp-Skinned Fish with Fresh Green Herb Sauce
  • Slow-Roasted Fish with Oranges + Fennel

SHOPPING LIST for HOW TO COOK FISH:

GROCERIES:

  1. Extra virgin olive oil
  2. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  3. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  4. Kosher salt and a pepper mill
  5. ½ cup white wine or vermouth
  6. 1 fennel bulb
  7. 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley
  8. 1 bunch fresh dill
  9. 2 oranges (Cara Cara, blood, or navel)
  10. 3 lemons
  11. Jar or tube of harissa (Moroccan hot sauce), pesto, or tapenade
  12. 2 anchovy fillets (from a glass jar, so you can reuse; or anchovy paste in a tube works too)
  13. 2 tablespoons capers
  14. 1/3 cup blanched or slivered almonds
  15. FISH: 1/2 pound each of 3 different kinds of fish fillet (you can get more if you have more people to feed): wild salmon (preferable), cod, halibut, mackerel, branzino, snapper, Artic char, or tilapia. Please make sure one (and only one) of the fish varieties has skin attached (preferably char, salmon, or mackerel, or snapper, all of which have tasty skin when crisped).  


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

There is no sit-down meal for the following classes:

The Baking Basics

Holiday Candy Workshop

Bubbles and Truffles: Candy Making for Adults


Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class. 

Non-refundable, credit only.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit/refund for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.

Missed Class Policy

What can I do if I have to miss a class during a Boot Camp?

We understand that finding 6 consecutive weeks on your calendar to book a Boot Camp can be challenging, but because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer you a make-up class if you cannot make one or more of the classes. As a consolation we have two options, for those who need to miss a class within a Boot Camp series:

1) Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or

2) Opt for our "Plan B" program:

You are welcome to attend any of our classes that still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats, as opposed to giving you a seat in a future class that would otherwise have been paid for. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing)

Plan B does not have any expiration date; just be in touch with me directly when you find a class that works for you.

Question from Laura C.
When you say "apartment-friendly" do you mean ways to cook fish that won't leave your whole apartment smelling like fish? Or do you mean "not using an outdoor grill"?
Answer from Jennifer C. Verified Educator
The former! Cooking fish in a closed system (oven, covered pot) that keeps the aromas at bay.

Question from Andrew
Will there be ongoing dates for this class throughout the first six months of 2018? Before I buy a gift card for my girlfriend, I want to make sure there will be classes beyond the January 17 date listed.
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! The school will be offering the How to Cook Fish class about twice a month; Unfortunately, they do not have a six-month schedule as they only book out 2-3 months in advance, but you can check back towards the holidays. Rest assured there will always be more Fish dates as it is one of the most popular classes! You might also want to save the class to your Wish List so you're automatically notified once the school adds new dates. To add a class to your Wish List, simply click the "Save to Wish List" button with the little heart icon next to it.

I learned so much and had a great time! Learned much more than just about fish - we learned about technique, knife cuts - much more than cooking fish. Erica was so knowledgeable and fun and I highly recommend this class!
