After over a year of research, writing, editing and formatting, my largest work is finally complete. It is called From Head To Tale and is an historic seafood cookbook containing over four hundred recipes, arranged chronologically by species, including recipes for appetizers, salads, soups and sauces.
From the back cover:
From Head to Tale explores five centuries of Western seafood history through recipes compiled from European and North American cookbooks. Learn which species of fish and shellfish have remained popular through the centuries. See how ingredients, cooking methods and even recipe formats evolved over time. From timeless classics to forgotten Medieval dishes, From Head to Tale will reveal of trove any seafood lover will enjoy.
Now that the book is finished, I plan on using some of the proceeds to try some of these historic recipes, which I will post on my new website buyingseafood.com
From Head To Tale is now available on Amazon, and will also be sold at Essex Shipbuilding Museum gift shop starting in spring 2017.
