This book is the perfect gift for fish lovers everywhere! The book is packed full to the brim with recipes for every kind of fish and for any occasion. With this book on your recipe shelf, no more are required.
The book is part of a great new series of books by Quadrille Publishers, reissuing old favorites. The book looks like a classic text, as with a collectors edition of fiction classics, it has a heritage blue cover, with silver edged pages and a ribbon bookmark (i love books with ribbon bookmarks included). Flicking through the book, the reader sees pencil drawings of fish, realistic and detailed drawings.
At the start of the book, before any recipes is a conversion chart - not hidden in the back with the index. There then follows advice on buying and cooking fish, written in plain English with easy to follow directions.
There is a section on garnishes, on savoury butters and sauces, hors d'oeuvre, soups, fresh water fish, salt water fish, shell fish and the final section is on turtle, frogs and snails. Each section is filled with many recipes written in plain English and concisely. The book finishes with a short glossary of names and terms used in cooking. The recipes are old fashioned, the book was originally published in 1938, and are therefore not for the health conscious but the book will have fish lovers having lots of ideas for new meals.
I received this book as part of the Amazon Vine program.
