New for 2019, John Blewitt the Angling Chef

Welcome to “Simply Cooking” with the Angling Chef at the British Fly Fishing International. I have been angling for silver fish, carp and game fish for more years than I care to remember (Richard S Walker and Tag Barnes were my idols). Being retired gives me the opportunity to fish more. 2017 saw me in Canada and 2018 in the Spanish Pyrenees fishing for trout.

I’ve cooked professionally for a number of years and all over the globe and on one occasion even for royalty. There is so much more to cooking trout than stuffing it with herbs and baking it.

There will be two demonstrations on trout cooking, starting at (approx)
11:00hrs and the other at (approx) 14:00hrs on both days.

Filleting, pin boning and skinning will be covered along with how to make a simple hot smoker and how to use it.

At least 2 dishes will be cooked at each demo, with one of the dishes at each demonstration using smoked trout. The emphasis is on simplicity with no ovens or grills, just the use of camping stoves. Each dish will be quick to prepare, simple to cook and good to eat.

So come along, let me suggest a few ideas on cooking the rainbow trout you have caught and I’m sure, you will enjoy it.
