From a passata-making workshop to a menu brimming with native ingredients, the new summer schedule has something for everyone.

For more than three decades, Sydney Seafood School has hosted hands-on cooking experiences for seafood lovers of all ages and skill levels, in the heart of Sydney Fish Market. This year, they’re saluting the summer with a series of classes aimed at levelling up your seafood skills for the warmer months.

On Saturday December 2, 2023, book into the First Nations Christmas masterclass, led by Rockpool Bar & Grill’s Luke Bourke and the National Indigenous Culinary Institute, an organisation dedicated to supporting young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander chefs. Over three hours you’ll learn how to source the best native ingredients from Indigenous-owned businesses and how to incorporate them into your Christmas spread. (Think kingfish tartare with Davidson plum and seaweed, and barramundi served with pepper-berry and river mint yoghurt.)

Sydney Seafood School’s ever-popular Seafood Barbeque classes return this season with a range of dates throughout the summer months. Diving deep into the world of Australian seafood, you’ll learn how to clean and ‘honeycomb’ squid, how to crisp skin like a pro, and how to barbeque prawns to perfection. Alternatively, join one of the Barbeque Master sessions to learn even more barbeque skills, from the secret to perfectly tender octopus to cooking a whole fish on the hotplate.

Elsewhere, be transported to the streets of Bangkok in the Thai Street Food masterclass with Grace Milinthangkul; to the land of tacos, tomatillos and top-notch seafood with a Mexican-themed ‘Palentine’s Day’ class on February 14; and to Bel Paese with the School’s classic Italian Seafood Feast class. And speaking of Italy – on Sunday February 4, 2024, Cornersmith’s Alex Elliot-Howery leads a four-hour passata day in the spirit of Italian nonnas all over the country.

Bookings for the summer series of classes at Sydney Seafood School are now open. See more details and book tickets.
