Fishmonger teaches GCSE students

Fishmonger teaches GCSE students

Posted: 31st January 2020

A fishmonger gave young students a flavour of life in the industry.

GCSE food preparation and nutrition students from Forest Hall School received a masterclass in fish mongering.

James Ackroyd, owner of Potter Street Fishmongers in Bishops Stortford, visited the school to show students how to fillet, debone and descale various fish, such as salmon, mackerel and hake.

He spoke with students about various types of fish, sustainability, food waste and cooking methods, as well as talking about working in and running a food business.

Students got a chance to fillet their own fish during the two workshops.

Linda McCormack, food technology teacher, said: “Our students were given the opportunity to have a masterclass with a master fishmonger, to develop their cultural capital and to learn about running a food business. These are real-life lessons they would not usually get in the classroom.

“Filleting a fish is on the curriculum, so it was wonderful for them to be able to learn that skill from someone who does it every day. It is always good to have someone from the outside world to show students the link between those skills and careers. They got to learn more about how a business is run and how food can take them to so many different places, not just working as a chef.

“It helped to develop their passion for cooking and food.”
