Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Davidson, a onetime British diplomat, may be a Pisces, so scientifically yet passionately has he scrutinized denizens of the deep. In previous books ( Mediterranean Seafood ), he was hooked on famously popular fish in particular waters. Now that those fins are regularly imported and exported, he has developed a global perspective, illustrated handsomely by artist-collaborator Knox. Holding a sort of family reunion for international seafood, in short essays the ichthyologist introduces the habitats and habits of major genera and species, with a sensibility wry and erudite. The book's strong suit may be as a reference, but Davidson also offers traditional recipes for everything from tilliliemessakeitetytlalakaaryleetsp as is;checked (Finnish sole rolls in dill) to Mrs. Mary Lincoln's fish chowder. The author has modified the Canadian principal of estimating piscatorial cooking time by a specimen's thickness to the square of its thickness, and has further identified doneness at a thermometer reading of roughly 145 degrees. This will come in handy with books such as his, where overly long cooking times may do in delicate fish. Better Homes and Gardens Book Club Bonus Book.

From Library Journal

This is more than a cookbook, for it is filled with Knox's beautiful full-page watercolors of fish, both exotic and familiar, from waters around the world. Davidson's informed text is a pleasure to read; he provides descriptions and background, recipes that also are international in scope, and information on seafood cookery in general. This will be appreciated as a reference source, a picture book, and a cookbook; for special collections. Better Homes & Gardens Book Club bonus.
