In the restaurant camaje. There are cutting boards with all necessary prep equipment in the main seating area and once everything is prepped you go into the kitchen to cook it all!

Yup, there is all of that, plus shopping for the fish to start the day. Our class bought and cooked four kinds of fish, plus mussels, shrimp, and scallops.

Shop & Cook: Chinatown for Fish
Reviewed by Anonymous on 3/6/2020
Abigail's class was great, my son and I learned a lot, and the food was delicious as an experience, 5/5 stars. However, I was disappointed that we never received the promised email that she said would include the recipes from that day. We were looking forward to making all the delicious meals! Otherwise, would recommend, but maybe take notes during class since you wont get them after!

Abigail was excellent! She was informative and interactive. Shopping for seafood, especially in chinatown is intimidating. I never used to think much about where my seafood comes from and how it's prepared prior to buying. I feel alot more confident and excited to start eating seafood more!!

The instructor was very kind and knowledgable but I was a little disappointed we didn't actually get to do a lot of the cooking. We learned how to filet a fish (and do one ourselves) which I very much enjoyed but was hoping to do the cooking. Instead, we all watched the fish being cooked different ways. Very nice teacher but not exactly what I was expecting.

I had the best time and learnt so much. It was fun, informative, and kept to a small class so very personal. Definitely recommend and I look forward to taking another class at Abigail’s kitchen.

Abbey was knowledgeable and informative. She explained how and where to buy fresh fish. What to look for and how to make decisions about whether to buy farmed or wild. Gave us some really good tips and guidelines. She showed us several techniques of how to prepare and cook fish. And everything was delicious! (But I'm still not a fan of Mackerel
