Need to distinguish between he- and she-crabs? Or to understand why a whelk is different from a conch? The Londons parlay their love of fish into yet another culinary treat (their first was The Fish-Lovers' Cookbook) by surrounding more than 275 recipes with information guaranteed to amaze and amuse, entertain and educate. In just one volume, ichthyophagists (those who eat or subsist on fish) will learn about buying, cleaning, and storing fish, be introduced to exotic finned creatures (including Arctic char, buffel, and elvers), and be enticed by seafood dishes influenced by world cuisines. Often, the nouvellesque names are longer than the directions: warm potato-crusted shark salad on pungent greens, baked mullet spetsai with feta cheese, and pan-grilled orange roughy with warm green lentils, among others. Yet best-loved recipes are not forgotten--gumbos, risotto di frutti di mare, chowders, crab cakes, and gefilte fish, for instance. Barbara JacobsFrom Library Journal:
The Londons are the authors of a variety of cookbooks, including the very good The Versatile Grain and the Elegant Bean ( LJ 4/15/92). Now their focus is fish and shellfish, and they provide a great deal of information on the topic, along with an enticing array of recipes. Introductory sections cover the practical aspects of buying or catching, preparing, and cooking seafood in general, while the recipe chapters include detailed descriptions of individual types. The recipes live up to the book's subtitle, for most are both uncomplicated and sophisticated. Fish cookbooks abound, but this is a particularly good one. BOMC HomeStyle Bks. alternate.
