FISH will be the focus as children take part in a workshop at a seafood school.

Junior school children in Bishop’s Waltham will get a taste of the sea this Friday when they come face-to-face with an assortment of fish in a workshop supported by Billingsgate Seafood School as part of an outreach project.

The workshop, run by home economist Davina Tibbetts, will introduce children to the sight, touch, smell and taste of several different fish varieties, and will also involve a demonstration by Bishop’s Waltham fishmonger Peter Atkinson.

Once the children have decided on their favourite fish, their next job will be to combine it with salad leaves from greengrocer Hylands to come up with a summer salad recipe.

The best recipes will appear on menus at restaurants in Bishop’s Waltham, with a proportion of the proceeds going back to the school.

The workshop is part of Bishop’s Waltham’s ‘Come Dine with Us’ food-related events taking place throughout July. For more go to
