The second installment in Alan Davidson'¬?s acclaimed seafood trilogy, NORTH ATLANTIC SEAFOOD is a comprehensive survey of the oceanic bounty found between the coasts of Europe and the shores of North America. The new edition provides detailed scientific descriptions of over 100 species, complemented by accounts of how the various fish, crustaceans, and mollusks are used in the cuisines of the North Atlantic region.

The recipe collection spans from France (Fillets of Sole with Morels) to Spain (Galician Octopus Pie) to South Carolina (She-Crab Soup) to Greenland (Marinated Halibut Fins). Superbly helpful, knowledgeable, and witty, this is a fascinating tour through the cultures and cuisines of the Atlantic, and the waters that gave rise to them.‚Ä¢ The original edition of NORTH ATLANTIC SEAFOOD received the prestigious Glenfiddich Gold Medal award and the Andr?© Simon Award.‚Ä¢ With over 100 line drawings and 200 regional recipes, this landmark volume is an essential part of any serious cook'¬?s library.Awards2002 James Beard Cookbook Hall of FameReviews"Mr. Davidson . . . has vast, multilingual acquaintance with the cuisines as well as the fishes of the world. . . .
