Fish Workshop & Lunch at The Duke
Ever wanted to improve your fish filleting skills?
Always wondered what the life of an inshore fisherman is like?
Fancy taking home some amazingly fresh fish?
We are delighted to offer you this rare chance to learn from a true veteran of the sea, and our favourite fisherman, Chris Bean. He will be coming up to London from Cornwall especially to offer you the chance to improve your fish handling skills, and to give you an insight into his life as a Cornish fisherman. Head Chef Benoit Beranger will also be on hand to demonstrate some fishy recipe ideas, before putting on a delicious three course lunch, accompanied by wines to match.
Chris has been fishing for over 40 years, and currently fishes the waters of the Falmouth Bay area in Cornwall for his family business, Kernowsashimi. His wife, son and daughter-in-law run the onshore activities. Chris and daughter Lorna do the fishing from their day boat Lady Hamilton. Their methods are regularly monitored by marine biologists for the impact they have on stocks and the surrounding marine environment. In fact, Chris is a bit of a pin-up for many marine conservationists and it's a huge privilege for us to have him come to visit The Duke.
Cost for the workshop is £75 per person, inclusive of morning coffee, three course lunch with wine, plus fish to take home (that you will have expertly prepared yourself in the morning).
For more information and to book, please call the pub on 0207 3593066 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
