45 recipes, 22 deeper insights, 100 photographs, 15 drawings.
Octopus, swordfish, and then tuna, bluefish, assorted small fish for frying or making
soup, red prawns, shrimp and clams all feature prominently in the seafood cuisine of Southern Italy, served up in uniquely delicious dishes with authentic Mediterranean flavours.
The result of an ancient knowledge, the recipes in this book are a faithful representation of the culinary traditions of this land, brought up to date in the light of a contemporary vision.
Catch of the Day also offers a rich and detailed understanding of traditional fishing techniques and seafaring culture, while recounting centuries-old methods, which have practically disappeared today, and insights into the different species of fish and seafood preserves. All with an eye to the most genuinely popular aspects of the culture of the sea in Southern Italy, in many ways a still archaic universe, which still hands down its ancestral legends and stories with a legendary flavour.
