Whole Fish Butchery with Paul Niddrie

Presented by Paul Niddrie
About the class

Join Chef Paul Niddrie (Flotilla, Muse Kitchen) for an afternoon of breaking down and cooking the whole fish.

There are advantages to living on the edge of the world – not only are we surrounded by endless coastlines but the riches of the ocean are at our fingertips. This class will help you turn your mind and your kitchen towards preserving that bounty.

We will show you the of break down of a whole fish, then you’ll grab your knife and get to work with our guidance. We’ll be focusing on building a balance of flavours and an ethical approach to fish butchery.

Cooking Techniques Covered: Aging fish, whole fish butchery, filleting, slicing for sashimi and more…

Your Menu…

  • Snapper ceviche tacos with fresh corn tortillas, avocado, tomatillo salsa and jalapeno
  • Smoked kingfish salad, Provençal-style with goats curd, peas, celeriac, white dashi, cress
  • Calamars a la Basquaise with chorizo, cherry tomato, chilli, guanciale
  • Fresh baguette to accompany and wine, of course!


You’ll then sit down for lunch with a glass of wine and an opportunity to ask the chef all of your fish-related cooking questions.
