In her second book, Jenny Jefferies, a vocal supporter of sustainable food production, turns her attention to what she calls “the gatekeepers of the sea.” From Shetland to the Scilly Isles, British fishers, marine scientists, and conservationists tell why they believe looking after the seas is important and explain their role in sustaining Britain’s seas. Great recipes, too.
Following the success of For The Love of the Land, this second cook book compiled by Jenny Jefferies and produced by Meze Publishing showcases the incredible fish and seafood found in the UK. For The Love of the Sea highlights the hard work and dedication of the men and women who work in the British fishing industry, as well as those who support them such as the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. The book features professional sailors, fishmongers, fishermen and women, marine conservationists, chefs and suppliers, as well as a foreword by Marcus Coleman, the Chief Executive of Seafish which works with businesses and the government to support the UK seafood sector. With over 40 delicious recipes and fascinating stories from the contributors, For The Love of the Sea aims to encourage everyone to fall in love with British fish and seafood again, championing sustainability and celebrating great produce.
