Welcome to our unique school on the English south coast, where we hold fish cookery workshops and also professional food writing, food styling and photography courses in the heart of the historic fishing quarter of Hastings Old Town. Whatever your cooking ability, writing skills or ways with a camera or iPhone, we have a course for you. And, if you can’t make it to Hastings, we also offer one-day courses at our spacious warehouse apartment in Shoreditch, London’s coolest destination.


Located next to Hastings’ fishing fleet and the iconic fisherman’s net huts, you will also enjoy a plentiful supply of fresh-off-the-boat seafood. Here you can draw inspiration from around you and share your work in a supportive atmosphere. Our courses also offer arresting escape, far away from the bustle of your busy life, and in the privacy of a unique kitchen and setting. Above all, we aim to find you your own voice and style.


These exciting workshops are directed by international award-winning food writer, photographer and home cook Alastair Hendy, who is accredited as ranking among the best working food writers, stylists and photographers in the world.


Having also worked as a chef, food editor and magazine creative director, Alastair Hendy is widely recognised as having an all-encompassing professional expertise in all areas that make up food publishing. Sharing his combined and award-winning talents is another of his passions, and you are sure to learn much from whichever workshop or course you choose.
