Fish Friers

Our one-day fish and chip training course is designed for people with catering or food retail experience but no practical knowledge of fish frying and can be tailored to your needs.

The syllabus is purely practical and the training course covers:

  • Fish, potato and batter: selection and preparation
  • Batter Equipment and Techniques
  • Types of oils and fats
  • Valuable hints and tips on buying, preparing and cooking your fish
  • Hands on cooking including correct frying temperatures, range management and portion control

This is a perfect training course to introduce your current shop staff to the various intricacies of the fish frying process, keeping them up to date with information and making them more aware of what is going on in the shop around them.
