What you'll learn in this fish class:

Fish is one of the easiest proteins to cook, but something that many home cooks fear, when it comes to choosing, storing, and preparing. Join us for our first-ever virtual fish class, so we can pull back the curtain and demystify fish once and for all.

We'll cover: 

  • How to Buy Fresh Fish (wild vs. farm-raised)
  • Pan-Searing: Skin-On vs. Skin-Off
  • Slow Roasting
  • Sauces for Fish

​We'll cook:

  • Fish Fillets with Lemon-Caper Butter Sauce
  • Crisp-Skinned Fish with Fresh Green Herb Sauce
  • Slow-Roasted Fish with Oranges + Fennel

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

There is no sit-down meal for the following classes:

  • The Baking Basics
  • Holiday Candy Workshop
  • Bubbles and Truffles: Candy Making for Adults

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden work table that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy

For Public Classes:

  • All classes are non-refundable.
  • We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy (for credit only) to ensure that we have enough time to refill your seat with another student.
  • While it is not in our nature to say no, we are simply not able to accommodate last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand that these things do happen.
  • If you test positive or have been exposed to Covid, and it is less than 48 hours before your class, we will certainly work with you to find a future class for you to attend.
  • If you need to reschedule with less than 48 hours notice, please reach out directly to Home Cooking New York: [email protected].

For Culinary Bootcamps:

Boot camp registrations are not refundable, but are transferable to another boot camp if you give us more than 1 weeks’ notice if you need to change your start date.

Because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer make-up classes to everyone who misses a class, as it happens too often. As a consolation we have two options for making up missed classes, provided you alert us ahead of time:

  1. Send a vaxxed friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or
  2. Opt for our “Plan B” program: You can register for any single class that covers the same/similar coursework you missed, provided it still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats. Please note, this is a last-minute, drop-in option, not something that can be scheduled more than 2 days in advance. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing).

Thank you for understanding!

Question from Laura C.
When you say "apartment-friendly" do you mean ways to cook fish that won't leave your whole apartment smelling like fish? Or do you mean "not using an outdoor grill"?
Answer from Jennifer C. Verified Educator
The former! Cooking fish in a closed system (oven, covered pot) that keeps the aromas at bay.
Question from Anonymous
Will we learn the proper way to cook Salmon?
Answer from Jennifer C. Verified Educator
Yes, you will learn many ways to cook it.
Question from Elizabeth G.
Does this class cover how to fillet a whole fish?
Answer from Jennifer C. Verified Educator
You will want to check out our How to Cook (More) Fish class, which does cover that. The next date is this Sunday at 5pm.
Question from Andrew
Will there be ongoing dates for this class throughout the first six months of 2018? Before I buy a gift card for my girlfriend, I want to make sure there will be classes beyond the January 17 date listed.
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! The school will be offering the How to Cook Fish class about twice a month; Unfortunately, they do not have a six-month schedule as they only book out 2-3 months in advance, but you can check back towards the holidays. Rest assured there will always be more Fish dates as it is one of the most popular classes! You might also want to save the class to your Wish List so you're automatically notified once the school adds new dates. To add a class to your Wish List, simply click the "Save to Wish List" button with the little heart icon next to it.

Great teacher - very engaging. Very hands on and the small group meant that we could ask lots of different questions. I really enjoyed the class and would look to go back to the same place for additional courses.

I loved the class! Thank you to Erica for teaching me so much! I can't wait to take the 6 week boot camp in the winter. This is a must for anybody, whether you're a newbie or a pro, I believe you'd still learn a whole bunch from Erica!

I learned so much and had a great time! Learned much more than just about fish - we learned about technique, knife cuts - much more than cooking fish. Erica was so knowledgeable and fun and I highly recommend this class!
