5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best fish related books out there 26 Feb 2007
By SixStringSamurai13 - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you've never heard of Rob DeBorde or his amusing internet cooking show alter-ego Tako the Octopus, you should be ashamed. DeBorde also writes for Food Network's Good Eats and if you are a fan of the informative and creative way that cooking is presented in Good Eats, you will no doubt be impressed by this book.

The book is split into multiple chapters each dealing with a certain kind of fish. Unlike other cookbooks that just throw recipes at you, this book will actually educate you about how the fish live, how they die, how they get to your table and what they give to you nutritionally speaking. If you're a fan about learning about the animal you're cooking you will love this book.

However, for those who JUST want recipes and in-depth directions and pictures teaching you exactly how to cook this book, you should look elsewhere. This book is definitely for those who want to do more than just cook their food and actually understand their food. Not to say this book doesn't have recipes in it, but in my case, I read this book as much for the recipes as I do for fun.

If you own author and Food Network celebrity Alton Brown's cookbooks, then you would be remiss to not include this on the very same bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Fish Stories 24 Oct 2007
By Albert F. Barnett - Published on
Well written and easy to read. Includes a great deal of information that is very useful, but never included in any other cook book I've read.

This book is charming. The layout is clever - very informative text and photos are educational and accurate. I bought this book for my son who has been fishing for most of his life. I gave this book to him for his 42nd birthday, and he was as wowed as I was. He loves to cook and eat fish - so this was the perfect gift.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't have thought I would enjoy as much as I did 9 Jan 2009

Just finished reading this fun little book and enjoyed every bit of it. I have only tried 1 recipe but that is not what this book is primarily for. I learned much more about each species than I ever expected.
