Catch of the day for Newport firms

Two Shropshire businesses have joined forces to promote healthy eating with an innovative cookery workshop.

Kitchen specialists QA Newport will host the sessions at their showrooms on the Audley Avenue Industrial Estate, with cookery inspiration supplied by Fiona Asson, of Fish in a Box.

QA managing director, Dave Teece, said: “We decided to join forces with Fiona, whose business premises are right next door, to encourage people to eat more healthily and experiment with fish.

“Many people claim they don’t like fish, but Fiona is certain that anyone who gives the workshops a chance will be converted.”

Fiona will host sessions in the QA Newport showroom using the in-store Aga cooker, and the aim is to attract 15 enthusiastic foodies to take part in each workshop.

“The sessions will challenge people’s pre-conceptions about eating fish, and encourage them to be braver in their choices,” she said.

“We’ll be looking at the type of fish that’s beneficial in our daily diets, storage, quick tips for preparation and cooking, and dealing with the issue of bones in fish which concerns many people.”

As well as the taster sessions, the two companies are also launching a series of hands-on cookery demonstrations where groups of friends or colleagues can sign up to watch ideas on how to cook with fish and suggestions for Christmas entertaining.

Dave said: “We’re very pleased to be working with Fiona on these innovative workshops, and as well as learning more about fish, visitors who take part will get the chance to see just what our showrooms have to offer.

“We have some impressive kitchen displays on site and we hope they will inspire our guests to be more adventurous with their cooking and to make the most of this great opportunity.”
