How many different fishes are we cooking and would you teach us the difference with each of them? 9 recipes means 9 fish?

Yes. You will meet in Chinatown to buy fish and groceries, then take the purchases back to the Camaje kitchen, where you will learn to fillet, then sauté, poach, bake, and grill. Then, you'll sit down to the fabulous meal you’ve made in this comprehensive class.

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!
Answer from Shandy L. Verified Student
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.

The class was excellent taking us from the fish market to the preparation and then the kitchen to the dinner table! You could not ask for more in 5 hours. Abigail is a wonderful instructor and chef.

The class met and exceeded my expectations. Abigail (the instructor) was helpful, informative and really provided a great learning experience. She explained and showed how to select fish properly. Then we headed back to the restaurant to cook. The setup was perfect. We were provided all of the ingredients and were instructed on how to prepare the meals. Abigail and other restaurant staff helped supervise and showed up the proper techinques for cutting, zesting and mixing. Then we all headed to the kitchen to cook. This class is perfect for any individual trying to get some experience in cooking fish. The food turned out great and will definitely be using the recipes and techniques in everyday life. Would recommend this class for singles, couples, mother/daughter outings and girl events.
