‘MaSTE’ Chef Lecture – Fish Cookery
- This event has passed.
In Association with DAERA, Belfast Cookery School will deliver hands-on seafood Masterclasses directly to Home Economics Teachers. By targeting education it is believed that bottom-up demand for local seafood will be created from local consumers with better-educated chefs well placed to meet the demand.
