Description

Seafood genius Dave Pasternack achieved national fame in 2000, when he served his first plate of pristine raw fish sprinkled with crunchy sea salt and fresh citrus juice, adding the word crudo--Italian-style sushi--to the American culinary lexicon. And here is the paperback edition of his much anticipated first book, a celebration of the fresh flavors of the sea, Italian-style.
The more than one hundred recipes are at once inventive and comforting, complexly flavored yet simply prepared. And they are accompanied by the stories of an impassioned fisherman, the tips and advice of a singularly expert authority, creating a masterpiece in the field.

Reviews

" He understands the fish business better than just about anyone, in ways intuitive, visceral, and pragmatic. . . . Pasternack, as much as a New York-born-and-bred chef can, has thrived by cooking best what he knows best." -- Mark Singer, in a full-length New Yorker profile
"There are few chefs more in tune with the sea than Dave Pasternack. From catching them to cooking them, Dave must have fish and fishing swimming in his veins. He brings a great purity and simplicity to his cooking. The authenticity of his approach to seafood will surely inspire you to follow him into the kitchen."-- Daniel Boulud
" Dave Pasternack is a fisherman, and his reverence for seafood shows in everything that comes from his kitchen. On occasion, the food actually makes me vibrate with pleasure." -- Ruth Reichl, in Gourmet
