Fish are a hot (or cold, depending on how you like them) topic at the moment – with sustainability and stock management making headline news. Hot off the responsible fish-sourcing press comes Fish: Recipes from the Sea published by Phaidon – responsible for many a beautifully designed cookbook.
Taking recipes from the Italian cookery bible, The Silver Spoon, Fish is both recipe book and guide, instructive, informative and delicious – showing you the best ways to choose fish, to prepare it, what to ask your fish supplier and the best ways to cook the fish as well as alternatives you can use for the recipes.
There is a focus here on how to adapt to sustainable sources and make the most of what is available locally to you. The last chapter centres in on technique break-downs – so you’ll know exactly how to wash, skin and remove bones from many types of fish and seafood. A beautiful, comprehensive guide to healthy, stunning food.
