Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

ue, essential cookbook, Pierre Franey, author of The 60-Minute Gourmet, goes beyond standard recipes to reinvent fish cooking for the eighties. In The Seafood Cookbook: Classic to Contemporary, master chef Franey and New York Times food critic and feature writer Bryan Miller have created more than three hundred original recipes that combine classic techniques, modern taste trends, and unrivaled convenience. The combination of Franey's skills and invention and Miller's knowledge of the current food scene as a professional critic have resulted in a book that melds the fundamentals of classic cuisine with the movement in America toward lighter, quickly prepared dishes.

Every, aspect of The Seafood Cookbook reveals the authors' intention to remove the cloak of mystery that surrounds buying and preparing seafood. Chapters are organized by cooking techniques since any one technique can apply to a variety of fish. Each chapter -- on baking, sauteing, deep-frying, grilling, poaching, and braising

From the Back Cover

There has been a revolution in cooking on both sides of the Atlantic in the past decade, and that applies to seafood as well. In this book, fresh fish is tampered with as little as possible to let its natural flavors and textures shine through; sauces are lighter, herbaceous, and come in as many colors as an island sunset. From the familiar to the exotic, the quick everyday meal to the more elaborate fare, organized around the fundamental cooking techniques, it is all here -- free, we hope, of the mystery that surrounds the buying and preparing of seafood.

Pierre Franey and Bryan Miller
