Sydney Seafood School Classes

Four experiences in one, their cooking classes include: mingling over seafood canapes and a drink; watching a live cooking demonstration in their tiered theatrette; cooking a gourmet seafood dish yourself at their fully-equipped cooking islands; and finally, enjoying your creation over a glass of wine in the private dining room.

Sydney Seafood School classes cover a wide range of cuisines, allowing everyone from the budding chef to the kitchen novice to get hands-on with a range of Australia’s freshest seafood species…

We’ve got all the inside info on some of the best class options!

Perfect for seafood beginners, their Seafood Basics class teaches you how to choose, prepare, and cook a variety of seafood. You'll end the class with a feast of Steamed Blue Swimmer Crabs in Lemon Soy Dressing, Squid with Garlic and Chilli, Pan-fried Snapper with Rocket Salad, and Blue Mussels in Tomato Sauce! Guests also take home a complimentary copy of the Sydney Seafood School Cookbook, to continue the seafood cooking experience at home!

Singapore Chilli Crab is one of the school’s most popular classes, and for good reason! This hands-on experience teaches you how to prepare and handle fresh Blue Swimmer Crabs and turn them into a decadent and messy Singaporean dish. The spicy, thick sauce, sweet crab meat, and tasty side-serves of mantou buns and green beans make this class a standout. Don’t be afraid to get messy as you dig in!

The Sydney Seafood School’s Spanish class will teach you how to cook some of Spain’s most representative dishes – a seafood Paella, and an array of tasty tapas. Guests love this class for the wide variety of seafood species it allows you to work with, including crab, squid, prawns, and fish! Finish the experience with a feast of Garlic Prawns, Fried Sardines, Red Capsicum Salad, and of course, a hearty Paella.

The school can’t wait to welcome guests back into their fantastic facilities for face-to-face classes. In the meantime, Sydney Seafood School gift certificates make the perfect present for a seafood-lover or budding chef in your life! Purchase gift certificates at:

Virtual private experiences are also available upon request. Bring your family or colleagues together for a virtual Christmas celebration, reconnecting over some delicious food, and learning new skills in the kitchen! Enquire about private experiences by contacting:
