Description

Awarded two Michelin stars for his cooking at the Aubergine restaurant in London, Gordon Ramsay is renowned for his superbly light but intensely flavored recipes. Winner of the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year award for Passion for Flavour, Gordon turns his attention to the food that excites him most: fish and shellfish. Aimed squarely at home cooks, particularly those who may never before have discovered the fantastic rewards of cooking seafood at home, the book starts out with clear instructions on how to buy -- from choosing the freshest specimens to calculating quantities -- with a comprehensive guide to filleting, skinning, trimming, preparing, marinading, flavoring, cooking and freezing all types of fish and shellfish. Quick to cook, healthy to eat and extraordinarily versatile, seafood is perfectly suited to the freshness and delicacy of Gordon's style. This combination, embodied in Passion for Seafood, epitomizes the way we want to eat today.

Review Text

Scottish chef Ramsay has two Michelin stars to his credit and the creative delights in this sumptuous seafood cookbook make it easy to see why. Recipes are light and packed with wonderful ingredients, and techniques are simply explained to encourage home cooks yet to venture into this culinary territory. Alternative fish are suggested to make life easier and Ramsay covers everything from the basics to 'chef's tips' gleaned from his extensive experience. Of the 100 plus recipes try Crab Ravioli with Sauce Vierge or Spice-crusted Tuna with Chicory Salad or sample the delights in the accompaniments section, such as Slow-roasted Tomatoes or Fondant Potatoes. The photography is impressive and readers will get all their money's worth with this one. (Kirkus UK)
