Countdown to all things fishy at Pembrokeshire Fish Week Published:  15 March, 2013

The countdown’s on for one of the UK’s leading food festivals – Pembrokeshire Fish Week.

Between 22nd June and 30th June, Fish Week has  more than 200 events for people of all ages across Pembrokeshire, celebrating the county’s superb fish and shellfish, the spectacular coastline, and the county’s maritime heritage.

Listed as one of the UK’s best food festivals by Conde Nast Traveller and known as one of the tastiest festivals in Europe. Pembrokeshire Fish Week has a fantastic range of eating out events from taster menus to gourmet seafood evenings, sharing platters to tapas or good old fish and chips..

 UK acclaimed Indian Chef Anand George, proprietor of the Purple Poppadum in Cardiff will be hosting Indian sea food workshops, plus new for this year is a Thai fish cookery class with Guy Morris and back by popular demand is Japanese sushi expert Kimie Atkins, who will be holding a sushi workshop.

Also new for this year is a Seafood Safari food trail, lead by Duncan and Sue Lucas from Passionate About Fish and chef Andrew Swales. Participants will start off by greeting the fisherman coming in with their haul, learn all about filleting and cooking fish before ending the evening with a tasty fishy feast.

The pair will also be holding fish filleting classes at secondary schools throughout the week, supported by Valero.

‘Fillies, Fellas & Fish’ is a celebrity chef seafood Masterclass at the Torch Theatre in Milford Haven on June 27th with Ravinder Bhogal and Angela Gray, Stephen Terry and Tim Maddams. Fresh from their fishing forays in the county‘s sea and rivers, the quartet will launch into a fun battle of the sexes, regaling each other and the audience with fishy tales while they cook up a storm on stage.
