A master with a blade
An introduction to knife skills.
Whilst I’ve always fancied myself as a ginger James Bond, my course at Billingsgate Market yesterday wasn’t designed to turn me into a trained assassin. No, it was a Christmas present from Sarah in anticipation of the warmer months and the (here’s hoping) bagfuls of fish that await me from my fishing kayak.
With an elegant waft of a knife and a deft turn of the wrist my flapping sea bass will become a worthy VIP at a Rick Stein brasserie.
Visitors at our luxury guest house in Eastbourne this Spring might be more interested in Neighbourhood Watch, the forthcoming play written and directed by Alan Ayckbourne, running at the Devonshire Park Theatre. Or perhaps La Boheme or Madame Butterfly, both at The Congress Theatre. For other things to do in Eastbourne check out our ideas page here.
Maybe you need to get a flavour of what some of our previous guests have been up to while they’re here with us. We’ve had a great response over the last week from guests sending in their pictures they’d like to share with us all – take a look at our Guest Gallery for the reality of a holiday here in Eastbourne and perhaps we’ll see you here soon.
Just don’t get flustered if you’re confronted by a knife-wielding loony in the hallway.
