Meant as a tribute to one chef's troubled and tormented son, A Boy After the Sea: An Untold Story is not an ordinary cookbook. When chef Kevin Snook learned of his youngest son's drug overdose, he vowed he would not let him die in vain. After being sexually abused while working onboard a commercial fishing boat, Daniel (Snook's son) turned to drugs to cope with the reality of what happened to him. At the young age of 19, and after three years of drug use and depression, Daniel ended his life by overdosing.
Now, Daniel's father has put together a foundation, The Dan Snook Trust Foundation, to help young people from all backgrounds cope with drug use, alcoholism and abuse. To support the Foundation, Snook reached out to friends, both new and old, to contribute to the book, A Boy After the Sea. Snook's decades as a chef have led him around the world cooking for and with an impressive collection of individuals. These people have now donated their time and knowledge to support Snook's cause: sharing the knowledge and art of cooking while informing about the dangers of the seas to both humans and creatures alike.
The book is filled with recipes from world-renowned chefs, beautiful photography of aquatic locations, and information regarding sustainable practices for every chef and connoisseur of cuisine.
Some recipes are not to easy to follow but this is more than a cookbook and the foundation is a fantastic one.
"Taking the theme of water and food," said Snook, "the book is a visual experience bringing together the two elements. Brimming with delectable seafood recipes, A Boy After the Sea is a gastronomic delight sure to satisfy not only the appetite, but also the soul."
Chefs such as Heston Blumenthal, David Hawksworth and Charlie Trotter contributed to this cookbook that is meant to inspire every chef from beginners to the advanced. , the recipes will undoubtedly whet the appetite of any foodie even remotely interested in seafood.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Boy after the sea An untold story 3 Nov 2011
By I B
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very disappointing book, with all the hype and recommendations, I am professional cook and after reading the book recommendations form top chef at St Pellegrino awards at London this year. I am truly disappointed, with the recipes.Which are unclear for professional cooks (Forget about domestic home cooks), for them its two difficult to understand at all.
The cause of the book is great, for trouble young people and making people aware of sustainability of our oceans. But book itself, doesn't reach the expectation that you expect after all the hype.
