Author(s): Alice Doyle
A cookbook that encapsulates the spirit of Sydney's famous seafood restaurant: simple, vibrant and creative.
First published in 1979, Alice Doyle's seafood cookbook has become a classic. In this lavish update with its fresh and natural photography, Alice's passion for cooking and for life shines out of her unbeatable seafood recipes.
You'll find the well-loved Doyle's restaurant recipes - paella, garlic prawns, seafood chowder, bouillabaisse and lobster salad - exciting new ones, like tempura of garfish and asparagus, and blue swimmer crab with vodka and chilli, and the old-fashioned family dishes cooked by Alice and her mother and grandmother before her. There is also information on buying, keeping, and preparing different kinds of seafood, plus a chart showing when and where different fish are available throughout Australia.
Alice puts on paper the kitchen secrets of a lifetime's fish cookery and along the way she tells the story of how Doyle's grew from a tiny shop in Watson's Bay to a chain of seafood restaurants, celebrated for their superb locations and fabulous cuisine. First published 1979; this 5th revised edition 2005.
