I buy cook books for aesthetic reasons. I like lots of big, colorful pictures of food, and this has plenty. I appreciate books that take time to explain utensils, preparation, techniques, and ingredients - which this one spends nearly half of its pages doing. I won't speak to the recipes themselves - I generally only read recipes for inspiration, not to follow them when cooking, so I can't say whether the recipes in this book will knock your socks off. But it does cover the basics and has lots of off-the-beaten path dishes, like tom yum goong soup and Hungarian roast carp. And the recipes themselves are concise, clear, and easy to read, and 1/2 of them have accompanying pictures of the final product. The only miss here is the very half-hearted kowtowing to sustainability. A few pages at the beginning, and a few others interspersed with short paragraphs about the importance of sustainability doesn't really balance out a book full of recipes that call for cod, or tuna, or other dwindling marine species. It's akin to reading Nosetotailathome.com if it were interspersed here and there with gout warnings and praise of veganism. Overall, though, a very entertaining book for foodies, chefs, and people obsessed with seafood. -Moonastery
