This is a wonderful book, scholarly, beautifully written yet full of practical recipes. Her writing shows up so much cookery writing as desperately pedestrian just go and read some terrible delia after this. The recipes even if they look strange can always be trusted she really did know what she was doing just try the scallops with gin. Every time you buy fish you'll look the individual fish up in this book and think which recipe shall i do ? Buy it !

Ignore the "it's too stuffy" comment about this book--it really is a wonderful, intelligent and practical book. With this and Alan Davidson's terrific book on North Atlantic seafood, you don't need much if any more.

And yes, herbs do play an important part in the recipes--it's just not nuovo Italiano of the Jamie Oliver school.

I bought this book after hearing about it being recommended on A radio programme which featured Rick Stein. To be exact this was on the BBC radios Food Programme and when Rick was asked if he could take one book away which one would it be advise it would be Jane Grigson fish book. I purchased the book and isn't just a good read but is full of excellent recipes. The good thing about the book and the recipes is that the book is written in plain English and recipes are easy to follow and have no weird and wonderful and hard to get ingredients. It was therefore easy for me to pick through the book decide what fish I like to cook, find a recipe, by the fish, cook the fish, and eat it within a very short period of time.

I am a fan of kedgeree and there are two recipes in the book and Jane Grigson recommends that you eat these rather as a evening meal or lunch rather than a breakfast. I love the taste of rice and fish die will certainly be doing that.

The book does cover the exotic as well as the common. Rather than bake a piece of card you may wish to cook or prepare a softshell crab. The recipe and instructions are all there.

The book has been revised several times my version is one of the earlier ones. However don't let that distracts you this is a wonderful book we should be on everybody's bookshelf. If only more recipe books were like this rather than Jamie Oliver's offerings.

This covers preparing and cooking just about every fish and is thus rare. My only other recollection is a River Cottage publication which too is useful too and represents one of their better efforts.The writing by Grigson is as always excellent making it a good read too rather than just for reference.It does however cover this role as well and the book is easy to use and limited to what you need but with useful insights into the subject matter.

It should be on the bookshelf in the kitchen of all fish lovers and cooks. You will, in my opinion,never probably never need another book on fish but if you do check out River Cottage especially if you wish to make your own smoker.
