New Amsterdam Market and Local Roots NYC are pleased to introduce a series of basic cooking classes at the New Amsterdam Market School, from knife skills to making fresh pasta to butchering fish. On September 23, join Chef Will Griffin, formerly at Lincoln Ristorante and co-founder of I8NY, for a Fish Butchery Class.

Dive into the world of fish butchery in this interactive class. The skills you'll learn will allow you to buy whole fish from the market instead of pre-cut fillets and portions. Cooking with whole fish is not only fresher and better tasting, but is also more sustainable.

Studentswill have the opportunity to learn and practice fish butchery on high-quality fish that we will provide from Pierless Fish, a Brooklyn based fish provider which many of the top NYC restaurants source from. Participants will be able to bring home thier cut fish fillets for their Sunday dinner.

We will be butchering round fish from start to finish. These serve as a useful template for most of the fish found at markets.

Each student will have 2 fish to practice with; this is a hands on class. We will cover the following topics: Gutting, cleaning, and de-scaling, filleting, removing the skin, removing the bones and forming appropriate portions.

We will also discuss how to select fish at the market, cooking techniques, brining, utilizing heads and skeletons for stock, and more. The instructor will demonstrate how to butcher flat fish, as well.

TICKET OPTIONS:
General $60 - Admission to class
General Plus $70 - Admission to class and $10 proceed to New Amsterdam Market 501 (c) 3.
