The Fish Book

How to choose, prepare and cook fresh fish and seafood

By Paul Peacock

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

This book destroys the myth that fish is difficult to prepare and cook.

This book will give you the knowledge and confidence to choose, prepare, cook and enjoy fresh food and seafood. It explains simply how to gut, clean and fillet fish and how to deal with shellfish and crustaceans such as crab and lobster, and what knives and tools you'll need for the job.

The numerous recipes take into consideration sustainable fishing and advise on which fish can be used instead of those at risk. The book also encourages the use of locally caught produce rather than those shipped around the world.

As well as recipes for cooking sea and river fish, shellfish, crustaceans you'll discover how to preserve fish.

Biographical Notes

Author Paul Peacock has written over 30 books on gardening, self sufficiency, curing meats, making cheese and sausages, keeping bees and poultry. He writes for the Daily Mirror as Mr Digwell, the cartoon gardener - the longest running gardening newspaper column in the world.

He has been a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4's Gardener's Question Time and appeared on numerous television shows. He runs the www.citycottage.co.uk website dedicated to the simple idea that the best food you will ever eat is cooked at home.

Pauls passion for fish was kickstarted by a plate of fritto misto de mare, which remains his favourite dish (recipe in the book) and queenies cooked in cream topped with cheddar( recipe also in this book)!
He believes the best fish in the world come from UK waters, that's why everyone buys it, far and wide, and, as Paul points out in this book, it is a tragedy the British hardly eat any of it.

This book is hopefully a tiny step on the way to changing that.

Authors:
Gesine Bullock-Prado

Baking and decorating a cake can be a challenge, and when the end result doesn't taste as good as it looks, a big disappointment! Author and seasoned baker Gesine Bullock-Prado has perfected a method for creating eye-catching spectacular cakes that measure up. Her step-by-step instruction for baking, piping, and making decorations make each bit manageable, whether it's baking layers ahead of time and freezing, or taking the time to crank out a slew of gorgeous frosting flowers that hold beautifully in the freezer until you need them. Her aim is to present a 'system' for cake decorating that carries you through from baking to finishing, no step skipped or left unexplained. Just remember BaDASS: Bake ahead, Dam, Assemble, Smooth coat, and Spruce it up. The layers are as easy as box mixes, and the smoothing and decorating instructions work the first time (not a thousand passes later). From custom shapes to complement a party theme to ultra-gorgeous cakes for special occasions, it's all within reach.

Ashley Rodriguez

If the idea of entertaining makes you feel faint, but quality time with your loved ones seems to be ever in short supply, one great meal can make a difference. Ashley Rodriguez has built a career and a life of sharing food: in restaurants, in her home, and in her cooking classes. She credits regular sit-down meals with bringing the joy and closeness to her relationships with neighbors, family, and friends, and wants to demystify the shared table for other families. Let's Stay In evokes coziness, closeness, and the building blocks of relationship-building; in a similar way, Ashley's first book, Date Night In, prioritized a couple's quality time together with regular at-home date nights, giving readers a night to cherish each other at a table for two. Her second book extends the table to accommodate everyone at doable, delicious dinners you can serve year-round. Imagine meals suitable for any time of day, and any kind of crowd: Breakfasts of Red Lentil and Chickpea Stew with Poached Eggs, Breakfast BLTs, and Spiced Raisin Scones Lunches of Zucchini, Gruyere & Basil Quesadillas, Ricotta, Speck and Plum Salsa Tartine, and Ivy's Split Pea Soup Table-groaning dinners of Steak Tacos with Radish and Pickled Onions, Oven Baked Risotto with Squash and Rosemary Candied Walnuts, Chicken and Herb Lettuce Wraps with Crispy Ginger and Peanuts, and Grilled Leg of Lamb with Green Sauce Sweets and drinks like Blood Orange Poppy Seed Upside Down Cake, Guava Coconut Punch, The Easiest Pear Tart, and Cardamom Cream SodaAshley is a natural teacher, and the recipes flow off the page as effortlessly as the conversation at a great meal. She practices what she preaches, too, making time to bring her busy family and loved ones together for meals as often as possible.

Les Marchés Francais

Brian DeFehr
Authors:
Brian DeFehr

This luscious cookbook was inspired by the unparalleled experience of shopping the open-air markets of Paris. Author Brian DeFehr was raised on the prairies of Canada and struck out to greener pastures in Winnipeg, Chicago, Montreal, and finally landed in Paris, where he developed an appreciation for the French way of shopping the markets, being in tune with the seasons, and allowing the flavors of an exceptionally delicious country to influence what's for dinner. The star of any French book, though, is always France itself: from the bright and clear ocean flavors of the coastal Mediterranean and the Germanic influences in Alsace and Lorraine to the rich comfort foods and cheeses from the mountainous regions near the Alps, the familiar foie gras and cassoulet of Bordeaux, and the piquant Basque flavors closer to Spain in the South, stirred together in the cosmopolitan melting pot of the City of Light---all of this and more, in 75 glorious dishes. They all happen to be gluten-free, inspired by seasonal market produce, and you'd never guess how healthy they are.Photographer Pauline Boldt has shot every dish in the book, along with atmospheric market shots, ingredient, and process shots. The recipes are inherently simple, focusing on good-quality produce, meats, and clear flavors, and the French mystique is ever present. Its aim is to take the reader on a tour of the best markets Paris has to offer, seasoned with culinary traditions from across France, without ever leaving your kitchen or armchair.
