This unique publication owes its existence to a property called 'The Fish Store', in 'Mousehole' (an idyllic fishing village, in Cornwall), and nostalgia (sometimes tinged with sadness) spanning three generations.

'There is something about Cornwall that gets under the skin and hooks you for life'....
.......a fishy pun but so accurate, if my experience is anything to go by!

'This book started out as a tribute to the memories of a remarkable house with an interesting background, but took its own momentum, telling the story of my own on-off and on-again relationship with the Fish Store and the village of Mousehole..
Although the recipes are all associated with the Fish Store, it isn't necessary to be by the sea in Cornwall to enjoy cooking them.........LB/August 2005'

Starting out as a 'notebook', it is truly wonderful that Lindsey went on to produce this marvellous book for all of us to savour! Not only does it record her first impression of the village, (maybe not surprisingly, the unrelenting call of the numerous seagulls as they compete to be loudest) and the undeniable beauty of the area, but also tracks her inevitable progress with preparing and cooking with fish and the influence of her mother-in-law.......Betty.

'....it was obvious from the way that she (Betty) shopped and organised her kitchen and the pencilled notes in her cookbooks that she was the best kind of inquisitive self-taught cook. She liked things done properly, responding to the seasons and adapting her cooking to what was available and whom she had to feed.
This style of cooking and eating, when everyone mucks in and the preparation is just as convivial as the eating, had a huge effect on me and it is the essence of the Fish Store cookbook........

What a beautiful and inspirational book this is! So much more than a cookbook.. The book covers not only fish recipes, as you might have expected from the title, ('The Fish Store' is the name of the building which was once a working Pilchard factory and the author's husband's childhood home), but all sorts of (particularly Cornish inspired) well loved family recipes inspired by the variety of mostly locally found fresh ingrediants from Cornish Lamb,to Chicken, Aubergine, Beetroot, Strawberries, Blackberries, Gooseberries & even Sloes to name but a meagre few and every one whether simple or unusual (& usually both!) steeped both in the anecdotal history included with every dish, & the love of great tasting, fresh, British food.

I only recieved my copy of the book today ~ and I'm looking foward to getting to know it well & to reading more of the intriguing family & local Cornish history imbued throughout the book (the first thirty-two pages are devoted to the combined family and local history which makes this book so special) & experimenting with some of the simple & straightfoward recipes contained within.

The character of the book is further embelished by beautiful photo's & simple line drawings drawn by Lyndsey Bareham's son, & I love the haphazard grouping of food types combined with a clear outline enabling you to find a recipe for any type of food you care to mention from fish and seafood, to nettles & jam.

I have n't read any of Lyndsey's previous books, but plan to investigate them further. This book is particularly relevent to me because of it's personal history content & that of the Cornish land & sea which I visited recently and became enchanted by.
