"Good Fish" Cookbook Giveaway


Brand spankin’ new.  Flyin’ off the shelves.  Here it is – every thing you ever wanted to know about selecting  sustainable fish, cooking it to perfection, plating it beautifully and  paring it with the perfect wine.  Good Fish.  NW chef and author Becky Selengut, who is knowledgeable, gifted and (my favorite) sassy, infuses this stunning book with all three qualities.  Drop-dead gorgeous photographs, out of the ordinary recipes – this is a book that makes me take a deep breath, smile and say – oh my goodness.  The little photos of how to tell when fish is not done, just perfect and overdone made me squeal a little.  So hard to explain with words, using photos is genius.  That’s because Becky has also been a teacher for many years and knows how to break techniques down so everybody understands.  Even if you don’t eat fish, enter and give this as a special gift to someone who does.  Very important to understand how to purchase fish so that we don’t ravage our fisheries, or support the wrong kinds of fish farming.  Becky’s cool new site has videos and more to support her work.  Drop by and visit.
