Description: Direct from the fish's mouth comes the only book ever authorized by that colorful old institution -- the largest wholesale fish market in the Western Hemisphere -- and written by a distinguished food journalist with the cooperation of the market.
In addition to its more than 150 glorious and tested recipes -- arranged by technique according to contemporary standards, and garnered from local chefs, home cooks, and the author's own experience -- this splendid volume is the last and most up-to-date word on all aspects of the subject. The book includes recipes ranging from the simplest preparation to the most elaborate, and tells you absolutely everything you would want to know about, from the equipment to use to the presentation.
In addition to an entertaining history covering the lore of the market, which is, after all, a rich part of the history of New York -- complete with anecdotes ranging from George Washington's love of shad to today's market: its people, its wares and how to buy them, and its tours -- the book includes a guide to the fish and shellfish from all over the world sold at Fulton; careful instructions for choosing quality seafood and for handling it properly and safely; and guides to seafood health and safety standards. Plus eight pages of color photos by Richard Lord of many of the varieties of fish sold at the Fulton Fish Market.
