Mediterranean seafood : a handbook giving the names in seven languages of 150 species of fish, with 50 crustaceans, molluscs and other marine creatures, and an essay on fish cookery, with over 200 recipes from the Mediterranean and Black Sea countries by Alan Davidson( Book )

21 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the essential book about the cookery as well as zoology of the fish and shellfish that inhabit the Mediterranean; now published in more than a dozen languages and available in France, Italy, Spain, Greece and many other home territories. It combines natural history and cookery in a most enticing way, providing information for the fisherman and seafood enthusiast as well as for the cook. Its genesis was while the author was posted to the British Embassy in Tunis, his wife needed an overview of the local fish markets to plan her shopping. It was taken up with enthusiasm by Elizabeth David and has been required reading ever since. The book is split between a catalogue, with drawings and description of each sort of fish, together with cookery notes and any information that might put it in context; and a recipe section which draws on the best methods of cooking these types of fish from the many countries best acquainted with them
