  • About

Conger eel is another neglected fish, although when I wrote about it in the London Evening Standard I received an enthusiastic crop of letters from the West Country. This traditional method of cooking eel I found in Dorothy Hartley’s Food in England. The cider helps to cut the gelatinous tendency of the fish. The dish may splatter when cooking, but this can’t be helped.
