Introductory Fish Smoking Courses
These one day training courses are short introductions to the art and science of brining, salting and smoking fish. These short
courses usually cost £100 per person, subject to a large enough group.
Basic courses are 2 day training courses which can be extended with additional practical coaching days.
Typically a basic coiurse will run on a Monday/Tuesday and some trainees can book additional coaching for the next 1 to 3 days.
During the coaching sessions one or two trainees will operate their own micro kiln producing their own smoked fish under the supervision of a trainer.
These coaching sessions are an important learning opportunity as trainees are no longer following instructions but are now in charge, with a lttle support of course.
Status: Subject to demand and final confirmation. Please
do not make any booking yet that cannot be cancelled.
