I have had this book for years and have given many copies away as gifts . It gives you the real Floyd and his observations on French cooking and life in an entertaining style. Oh and by the way it gives you everything you need to know about fish and cooking and enjoying it! This is the book with the associated TV series that kick started fun cooking on TV. Brilliant.

...so it lacked the glossy large format we are used to in todays cook books,but for the very low price I was happy to get one to add to my Floyd collection..full of the usual Floyd prose, so despite its slightly *used* look..well is 30 years old..I was very happy

My copy is old & somewhat dated in design/presentation (different cover) but it is the fish book I most use. As a spearfisherman & angler I catch a lot of different sea fish, shellfish, crabs & lobster and I have found this book provides the sort of easy to follow, no-nonsense information I need, especially when dealing with something for the first time. I am not big on slavishly following recipes but the information on cleaning/preparing & general thrust of the recipes are just what I need to "orient myself" to get cracking (I really enjoy preparing the fish I catch & cooking it).

Also there is a sort of second level to this book (& perhaps more): Floyd tells you about how to make basic sauce components, mixing oils & egg parts, etc. in the French tradition - for serious cooks & those into continental cooking, perhaps this is well known but for me it was entirely new and quite interesting. He also gives local/professional insights into recipes such as traditional Bouillabaisse - tomato & fish stew/soup - of which I have made many variants with quite a variety of fish (inc. bass, mackerel, grey mullet, pollack, ballan wrasse, scallops, limpets, shrimps, mussels, clams, cockles).

Something to bear in mind: a Guernsey fisherman once told me the best way to cook fresh fish is often just to fry it in butter :)

After several years of missing him on TV it suddenly struck me that of course I can find plenty with Floyd on YouTube. Among his wonderful shows I found again my favorite series, "Floyd on Fish". So I ordered the book as well; it came after a few days, cost med next to nothing and when I opened it it was signed by the Master Chef himself. It doesn't get better than that :)

Didn't realise the book has as much dialogue as recipes, still I loved this man with his lovely smile and although we were sad to lose him at least he marched to the sound of his own drummer.

Great to get hold of this old book I used to have in the 1980s. One of the best paella recipes I have ever tried. Worth it for that alone. Book arrived in top condition. great service.

The original, the one and only. Makes most modern tv chefs look like dull, self obsessed nit wits.
