Gain a broader knowledge of fish and seafood species, seasonality, sustainability and preparation.

Overview

Who is this for?

This course is designed for chefs at all levels and will be tailored on the day to meet training levels.

Why should I take part?

M&J Seafoods are delighted to offer two unique Fish and Seafood training days to TUCO chefs in 2019. Each one-day development day has been designed to provide chefs with a broader knowledge of fish and seafood species, seasonality, sustainability and preparation. The training will be held at one of M&J Seafoods suppliers’ fisheries to give a deeper understanding of the product that reaches their kitchens.

The training days will be hosted by Terry Martin, Master Fishmonger and 2-times winner of the BFF British Fishcraft Championships and Business Development Chef Jason Calcutt. By the end of the day, each chef will leave feeling excited and confident to use more fresh fish.

The course duration is one day. However, accommodation plus an evening meal can be added on at the time of booking.

FAQs

  • I can’t see a particular course/training, can you run it?

    If you are interested in receiving training that is not already offered by TUCO Academy, pop us an email or give us a call and we will see if we can source it for you. By going through TUCO Academy you will be able to purchase the training at a subsidised rate and if you can offer the training to other members it will reduce the cost further. 

    Does this answer your question? If not, you can contact us directly.

  • Can I request a course or development day be held at my organisation?

    The TUCO Academy has worked hard to offer all training at a subsidised price, agreeing reduced corporate contract rates with hotels etc. - yet still understands the benefits of in-house training. To that end, working alongside the professional trainers, TUCO Academy can arrange for events to be held at your own institution, for no extra cost. 

    Does this answer your question? If not, you can contact us directly.

  • Who can use the training with TUCO Academy?

    All professional development events are available for ANY staff in institutions who are members of TUCO, not just employees in the hospitality, catering and commercial services department.
