Kiss a Fish’s owner Roz MacAllan is a food writer and cookery school owner who moved to Tasmania from Queensland for a quieter lifestyle and sea change. Classes are held in her beach house in a purpose-built kitchen on a deck overlooking the sea, an ideal environment as the school’s focus is the abundant and diverse seafood from Tasmania’s pristine waters. Students work with Roz over a full day, with a break that includes a walk to nearby Skeleton Bay to forage for edible sea plants. A special feature is cooking in the wood fired oven that she lights for every class. The brick oven, designed by the late Alan Scott, is renowned for effective heat retention. Roz says that cooking with fire certainly adds a distinctive flavour to seafood. Classes run from November to April. It is possible to book other times by appointment.
