New Cooking School Announced for the Mornington Peninsula

It's oh-fish-ial! Peninsula Fresh Seafood has just announced their soon-to-be-launched cooking school, arriving mid-year! We spoke to founder and owner Geoff Newing for insight on what we can expect with the new initiative.

Fishing around for the next best learning and culinary experience on the Mornington Peninsula? You want to attend the new cooking classes from Peninsula Fresh Seafood. Participants will be fully immersed in learning the top tips and tricks for preparing and cooking seafood. Catering for group sizes of 12-16, classes will focus on various topics and change with the seasons.

There will be a strong focus on training in fish filleting and preparation for class styles. Keen to add to your recipe book at home too? Select fishmongering classes will also lead to cooking classes. Including a sit-down meal to enjoy at the end! These classes will be conducted in conjunction with Tamara's Kitchen.

With 30 years of experience in the culinary industry, Tamara will bring her extensive and in-depth knowledge to teach and guide participants through cooking classes. This will make for an exciting collaboration with Peninsula Fresh Seafood. Did you know Tamara's Kitchen also hosts cheese-making and sourdough bread-making classes throughout the year? These are popular (and delicious) sell-out experiences!

Looking ahead to the upcoming Cooking School, a friendly and non-challenging environment will make it a welcoming experience for all to join. Geoff Newing and the team recognised a particular gap in the market for educating customers on using seafood with confidence. He believes knowledge should be shared, even in the simplest things!

Making the most of seafood resources is also an integral focus for the new cooking school initiative. As part of the classes, there is an aim to educate participants on how to use more of the fish when in the kitchen. And with that, instil encouragement in the community to break out of the usual recipe routine and try something new with the catch of the day. As Geoff points out, some of the best fish you can eat come from parts of the fish, you wouldn't consider eating!

A new purpose-built facility within the Dromana industrial estate will set the scene for the cooking classes. The new space will represent an ideal space to conduct the group experiences. Are you looking for somewhere to host your next team-building event? This might be the perfect place!

Keen to keep up to date with all the latest information? Explore more of Peninsula Fresh Seafood here. Interested participants can also pre-register (to be notified of classes) via the Tamara's Kitchen website here. Those who register will get the first choice of classes.

Classes are set to begin in the middle of the year.

Operating at four locations, Peninsula Fresh Seafood continues to source and provide the freshest fish and shellfish to the region. Their factory shop is in the Dromana industrial estate. This is part of the newly established Dromana Habitat.
