The catch is in... and it's delicious!
Steeped in 700 years of history and tradition, Billingsgate is the UK's oldest fish market. Offering the widest selection of fish in the United Kingdom, Billingsgate Market is based in London's Docklands. At 5 a.m. every Monday to Saturday, a bell is tolled and London's "free and open market for all sorts of fish whatsoever" opens for business.
This unique book celebrates the market's fascinating history, explores market life today, and provides a comprehensive guide to eating healthy, wholesome, nutritious fish. C.J. Jackson of the Billingsgate Seafood Training School offers invaluable advice on selecting fish, sustainability, techniques for fish preparation, and over 80 delicious recipes ranging from Fish in Beer Batter to Lemon Sole Gratin.
'This wonderfully illustrated volume does what all the best foodie cookbooks should: it makes you want to try something new.'
--Waterstone's Books Quarterly
"Essential reading for anyone with a love of cooking and an interest in the history of one of London's greatest markets"
--The Big Issue
