Try something new this Spring and take a Colliers Cookery course. First up, on Sunday 15 March, is Steve Lyon (whose yummy mackerel recipe is below) teaching a day-long fun-packed Fish Skills Course. Steve isn’t only helping you to build your knowledge of preparing, filleting and cooking fish but also about its sustainability. The course is open to all levels. Steve will then be turning his attention to Young Chefs on Thursday 16 April where he’ll inspire his pupils to master both the basic and more complex skills of cooking a three-course meal.

Next is baking course on 23 April with cookery author, Charlotte Pike who demonstrates baking a type of bread, a tart and a cake, then it’s hands-on time for you. The best bit at Colliers Cookery is getting to enjoy what you’ve produced.

If you fancy getting a group together or have a special celebration, Colliers can also organise a bespoke course, tailored especially for you. Find out more about these and other courses at Colliers Cookery.

  • Beetroot relish:-

  • To make the beetroot relish, bind together the beetroot and 3 teaspoons of horseradish cream until it has an unctuous, buttery consistency. It should not be too dry or wet and should be a vibrant purple colour. Season to taste with the salt, pepper and lemon juice

  • Mackerel:-

  • Turn over and then remove mackerel from the pan. Finish with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice

  • Lightly dress the rocket with a little extra virgin rapeseed oil, lemon juice and sea salt

  • To serve, spoon a serving of the beetroot relish onto the centre of a plate.

  • Lay one seared fillet of mackerel on top, and grate a little fresh horseradish over it.

  • Finish with a few finely chopped chives for a little colour

  • Place a small spoonful of horseradish cream next to this. Serve immediately
