Roz MacAllen brought the Kiss a Fish Cookery School to Triabunna for Seafest last weekend. And Think Tasmania was lucky enough to join the class for some outstanding lessons in seafood preparation.

Seafest Triabunna: Kiss a Fish Cookery School

On Saturday, Tania roamed the Marina and snapped some of the Seafest highlights, as well as the town’s general attractions. We’ll have more to share about those things later. Meanwhile, I pulled up a chair in the front row of the Rec Room at Triabunna’s old Council Offices on the corner of Vicary and Henry Streets… just a hop, skip and jump from the waterfront.

Oysters: cookery class

After a thoroughly enjoyable morning in class, I’m now equipped with the knowledge and recipes to prepare Thai-style seafood delights at home. I was even shown how to shuck an oyster correctly, so I don’t lose any fingers!

Kiss a Fish Cookery School: tasting plates

The tastings were all amazing; reviewing the photos makes me keen to follow-up with more lessons in St Helens, the home of Kiss a Fish Cookery School. Roz MacAllen is an inspiring teacher and she has an accomplished team; they’re also very pleasant people to be spending time with. We’re chalking this up as another fabulous foodie experience for Tasmania.
