Seafood Scotland launches virtual supper clubs

Participants in the virtual supper club

In a bid to encourage more Scots to get fishy in the kitchen, and at the same time support the ailing Scottish seafood industry, Seafood Scotland has just launched a series of virtual ‘Seafood Supper Clubs’, putting chefs and budding cooks together online to create restaurant quality seafood dishes at home.

Foodies that are missing their favourite restaurants can use the treasured recipes gifted by notable Scottish chefs, along with step by step instructions and video content designed to make cooking seafood easy and accessible for all.

The first event, hosted on Thursday by Carina Contini, of Edinburgh’s Contini, The Scottish Café and Restaurant and Cannonball, saw the chef take a group of social media influencers through a ‘Date Night’ recipe for Baked Lemon Sole with spinach and cheddar. The influencers, with a combined following of over 150,000 people, will then share the recipe, video, tips they have picked up with their audiences along with discount codes for local suppliers. Consumers will also be able to access the recipe materials directly at www.seafoodfromscotland.org

Further Seafood Supper Club events are planned for Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen tackling feeding a family, seafood for one, and delicious meals using basic store cupboard ingredients.
