The masterclass lasts for an hour but with on site Forman's Fish Island offering unrivalled views of the Olympic Stadium and Forman's London restaurant available Thursday - Sunday, you might want to stay on.
Up to five spectators can enjoy watching the masterclass from inside the smokehouse or the viewing gallery.
The smokehouse is cold so warm clothes with long sleeves are recommended, along with closed toe shoes and no high heels (as there are steps down to the smokehouse). Compulsory safety wear is provided on arrival.
The delights of Forman's Fish Island venue and the on-site restaurant can be enjoyed from Thursday to Sunday evenings. Visit the on-site art gallery, have a drink and take in views from the roof terrace.
