4.0 out of 5 stars If you think fish isn't your thing, it will be after this., 15 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Rick Stein's Seafood Odyssey (Hardcover)
I have to say this is a great recipe book. As a keen, but novice cook, one of the best bits is the introduction where Rick explains, with photos, how to prepare fish. It certainly took the mystery out of it for me.
But the highest recommendation I can give is that I have been lucky enough to eat at Rick's Seafood Restaurant in Cornwall and attempted to recreate my meal using this book. I must say that the results were amazing - my Kingfish curry tasted almost exactly like my main course in the restaurant and it was even pretty easy to make!
(Only 4 stars, because, as the previous reviewer says, photos for each recipe would be preferable.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A most readable recipe book. Highly recommended., 7 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Rick Stein's Seafood Odyssey (Hardcover)
The book is an excellent collection of seafood recipes to treasure and try. It complements the TV series which it accompanies in managing to convey Rick's enthusiasm and passion for his work. I was in the UK when it was shown on TV early this year and was hooked for the entire series. His anecdotes for each recipe makes absorbing reading even for those who do not often go into the kitchen. His joie de vivre is especially infectious and is an inspiration to me. The book was a gift from a friend and I shall treasure it. My only complaint would be that not every recipe has a picture to accompany it. Apart from that, one of my dreams now is to have a meal at the Seafood Restaurant in Padstow one day and I suppose I can give no higher compliment than that.

This review is from: Rick Stein's Seafood Odyssey (Hardcover)
This book is great but if you want a great Rick Steins cookbook you cant go past "Seafood", it contains recipes from all of his other books and more. This is a good guide to his TV series, but for a complete seafood guide get a hold of his Seafood cookbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rick is Neptune., 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rick Stein's Seafood Odyssey (Hardcover)
If a new King of the Sea is voted in it should be Rick. I have always admired his curiousity combined with his no-nonsense approach to cooking food. His food is for hungry people who want to eat a decent meal.... not people who eat as a hobby.
