Useful but Rather Unexciting,
By A Customer
This review is from: Leith's Fish Bible (Hardcover)
If you don't have the basics of fish cookery I think you'd be better off with a smaller book which focuses on basic techniques and offers tried and tested regulars. If you can cook fish then you'd probably be happier with a cookbook which shares your enthusiasm for new ways with fish and shows appetising pictures of the possible results. If you want to read about fish buy a book by Alan Davidson. This great unwieldy thing is okay but I'd have said that it's true place is in a hotel where there's the requirement for a fish choice each day; you can go to the market, buy what's going and when you get back just look up the index. I can see why the previous reviewer approves but as an adequately informed amateur I'm happier to weave between Alan Davidson and Mitchell Tonks.
