CIS Excellence Chef of the Year sponsor, BaxterStorey Scotland, provided an opportunity for their chefs to increase their knowledge of fishmongery skills at two hands-on training sessions held last week at Tennent’s Training Academy in Glasgow, and Nick Nairn Cook School in Aberdeen.

Organised as part of the contract caterer’s Chef Academy Scotland development programme, 20 chefs took part in the Art of the Cooking Fishmonger workshops.

Teaching a blend of knife and cookery skills, the sessions were created by the Reading-based contract caterer to help their chefs make fish dishes more affordable without compromising on quality.

With lessons on filleting skills and making the most of underused species, the chefs learnt how to maximise the potential of fish dishes on their menus.

Rik Razza, head of chef development at BaxterStorey, said: ‘Fish is often seen as an expensive ingredient, and this workshop has been specifically designed to demonstrate how smart fishmonger techniques can improve profits while still delivering exciting, superior quality dishes.

‘The sessions enabled our chefs to practice new cooking skills whilst giving them invaluable restaurant management tools.’

The Chef Academy Scotland offers BaxterStorey chefs the chance to hone their practical and theoretical culinary skills with an annual calendar of courses.
