Chef and Restaurateur Josh Niland will take his skills to the stage for the Take One Fish Butchery Masterclass.

There will be two one-off events held in Melbourne (2 August) and Sydney (8 August), which will see Niland celebrate the release of his second book and give attendees an insight into his approach to cooking with fish.

Guests will learn about everything from fish preparation to cooking and storage, with Niland demonstrating tips and tricks on stage.

“I am incredibly excited because this opportunity allows me the luxury of time, time to show what we do and be able to explain why we do it,” says the chef.

“I am looking forward to the evening and offering complete transparency around our work and to unpack all that we have learnt to date. I hope that people will leave having enjoyed a great night out, and take away practical solutions for how we can approach fish differently, not just at home but when ordering fish on a menu or in a market.”

Take One Fish is the first in a new series of events called Here’s One I Prepared Earlier hosted by Alice Zaslavsky.

“I believe that cookbooks can be read like novels – a perfect time-capsule of their author’s philosophy on food and life, in dishes,” she says.

“This live series aims to connect the dots between plate-to-page-to-stage in a veritable feast for the senses.”
