Hugh Fernley Whittingstall is better!,
This review is from: Fish (Hardcover)
I got this book a few months ago and have now tried out a good few of the recipes. All have been good. That's not my main gripe about the book though. For £25 I expect the publisher to have done a proper job on copyediting and indexing. They haven't. Page references to recipes don't always match up. And the index is rubbish. For example, although the book contains 3 or 4 recipes for risotto, they are all listed under the fish used in it, not under the dish itself. So if you think, oh, I've got some good fish stock and fancy making a risotto, there is nothing to be found if you look it up in the index. It's irritating to say the least. The paper used in the production is also suspect. I got a corner damp and it just disintergrated on me.
All in all I'd say you're better off with Hugh Fernley Whittingstall's fish book.
