A cookbook to celebrate the British seafood community and their food
Once again championing Britain’s farming and fishing communities, award- winner Jenny Jefferies returns with her latest compilation, For the Love of the Sea II. Following the course of its predecessor, which won the Guild of Food Writers Award for Best Self-Published Work in 2022, this sequel – which has been endorsed by Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw – celebrates Britain’s cornucopian coastline through the people, produce, and practices that define it. Mitch Tonks, founder and CEO of Rockfish, hails the book as “a seafood odyssey” in his foreword. Readers can discover stories and recipes from 40 contributors, from fishmongers to foragers and basket weavers to marine scientists. For the Love of the Sea II is also the perfect guide to finding your next destination restaurant, including Ninth Wave on the Isle of Mull which specialises in wild game and freshly caught seafood, and Scott’s Richmond on the banks of the River Thames in London.
Alongside food and its provenance, a central theme of this book is advocacy for sustainability and education. Author Jenny Jefferies will be donating 10% of her net profits from the sales of her latest release to The Food Teachers Centre, a charity which runs the ‘Fish in Schools Hero’ programme with the aim of introducing young people to cooking with fish and seafood for both flavour and nutrition.
Recipes include Cockle and Bacon Chowder; Haddock Scotch Egg; Thai Red Curry Mussels; Stargazy Pie; Whelks in Chilli Garlic Butter; Mediterranean Roasted Whole Seabass and many more. For the Love of the Sea II is a true homage to the bounty of Britain’s waters, inviting readers to fall back in love with our coastline and celebrate the incredible communities who are bound to it.
