I have to agree with the previous reviewer, just an excellent book, for both Fish lovers and would-be Fish lovers (which I am). The combination of good background information, intelligently and humourously written, on the Fish and how the buy and prepare them, along with original and tasty receipes, works excellently.
The book is well organised, easy to read and use. My knowlege of fish has increased dramatically and we are now actually looking forward to eating more fish (recommended healthy 3 meals per week?!) which seemed an impossibilty before this book...my man is a meat lover, but has really enjoyed the meals thus far, so we are making progress at long last..
One added benefit for us, being Brits living in France, is that finally I know which fish I am buying as the fish names in the book are shown in 5 languages...excellent idea, as the French can sometimes have 2 names for their fish, instead of the one name in English, which is not always easy as I have difficulty in recognising one fillet from another in the display.
Thanks for an excellent book, I would highly recommend it, particularly for anyone looking at eating more fish and trying to enjoy the experience.
