Cooking Class - Handling Fresh Seafood in the Kitchen

In this class, you'll learn the basics of safely handling and cooking fresh seafood at home.

If you've always wondered how to safely handle seafood or are interested in working with raw fish, this introductory class will help you get started. Chef Bahr covers how to use multiple ingredients from the sea, and explains how to tell if seafood is fresh and clean.

Aside from learning how to properly handle fish, you'll take home a diverse array of recipes and techniques from a wide range of culinary traditions. This class includes tricks on shucking oysters, and methods to filet and slice fish for a tangy jalapeño lime carpaccio. Chef Bahr will explain how to clean salmon for fresh poke and how to prepare a seafood paella. After enjoying these fruits of the sea, you'll finish your seafood education on a sweet note with rich chocolate custard served with berries and shortcake crumbles.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Bahr was the perfect combination of host and instructor. Clearly explained and demonstrated everything while encouraging a fun atmosphere. Great venue for a beautiful late summer evening with windows/doors open, would be cozy in cold weather. Techniques learned will be useful in the future. He also discussed different varieties of oysters, types of fish to use for the various recipes, how to choose an oyster shucking knife, what to look for when buying fresh seafood, etc. Took "Handling Fresh Seafood" and will take another class soon.
