5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational., 30 Aug. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fish Store (Hardcover)
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.

I highly recommend this book, both as a wonderful array of delightful recipes, (unpretensious recipes which in every case allow the inate qualities of the simple fresh ingrediants to shine), and as a piece of heritage which is a testimony to our culture & that of our food which is so strongly evident in this enchanting part of our land.
