Al Brown Go Fish - Recipes and Stories from the New Zealand Coast

Al Brown Go Fish – Recipes and Stories from the New Zealand Coast. Al Brown can be counted on to find and share great New Zealand cuisine. In Go Fish Al combines his two great passions — cooking and fishing – and brings us more than 100 exceptional fish and shellfish recipes. Covering crustaceans, shellfish and fin fish of many varieties, Go Fish is the ultimate guide to sourcing and cooking fish. Includes great recipes for whitebait, piper, paua, and heaps more!  

Showing passion and respect for our cuisine and delivering it with uncomplicated excellence, Al’s recipes are about simplicity, yet sophistication, character and sometimes an element of surprise. Stunningly photographed by Kieran Scott, Go Fish is the must-have cookbook for every New Zealand household. It takes us back to the days when a great meal could be had simply by casting your line from the dinghy. It’s about getting back to the fundamentals of life – of enjoying the environment around us and making the most of what we have.

Al Brown has loved fishing since he was young, from days fishing with his dad in the holidays, and he still loves nothing better than fishing with his mates or his kids. Al is the acclaimed Wellington chef
and co-owner of Logan Brown – one of Wellington’s top restaurants. He’s one of the presenters of award-winning TV show Hunger for the Wild and author of the successful cookbook of the same name. As
a culinary ambassador for New Zealand Trade & Enterprise since 2003, he also helps to promote New Zealand cuisine overseas. You can get a copy of Al Brown’s Go Fish from his website: www.albrown.co.nz

Al’s passion for cooking, fishing and his sense of humour shine through in this wonderful book, it’s straight from the heart. Al cares as much about how we eat as what we eat, and challenges us to rethink our use of the ocean’s bounty. This is a cookbook with a conscience. Could I ask for more? Just an invitation to “go fish”.
Jennifer McLagan, author of Fat

Al will have you searching the fish bins at your nearest market, searching out the familiar and unfamiliar kaimoana for your next dinner. His easy-to-follow creative recipes really make the flavours sing, with great step-by-step photographs. A winner of a cookbook.
