The River Cottage Fish Book

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Nick Fisher
Hardback.  Very good condition.  2012

The first part is dedicated to understanding fish - Hugh and Nick explain the ins and outs of procuring a good fish, discussing fish farming, aquaculture, sustainability and harvesting issues, how to buy and catch fish in an ethical way, and how to prepare it for the kitchen.

Next they open up a whole world of fish cooking - pickling, salting, barbecuing, frying, potting, stewing, smoking and more are explained in depth, each technique followed by classic recipes from gravlax to kedgeree, from sashimi to chip shop battered cod.

Finally, Hugh and Nick present Britain's best fish by species, giving portraits with notes on seasonality and ecology, as well as listing the relevant recipes from part 2 with alternatives. With a new introduction from Hugh, 
The River Cottage Fish Book is the only book on fish that the adventurous fish lover will ever need.
