"Fish Market" cookbook author and nationally syndicated food writer Kathy Hunt will hold a seafood talk and tasting at Rehoboth Beach’s Browseabout Books at 5 p.m., Friday July 12. Dubbed by Publisher’s Weekly “a fine guidebook for learning to deal with a cornucopia of seafood,” "Fish Market" serves up everything that readers need to know about selecting, storing, preparing and pairing healthful fish and shellfish.
Hunt’s cookbook features more than 130 creative, but approachable recipes, and more than 75 detailed illustrations. Sharing flavor affinities, food pairings, eco-ratings and a bit of history for each dish, it takes the mystery out of choosing and cooking seafood. With 23 million Americans no longer consuming meat and even more taking the less radical step of integrating fish and shellfish into their weekly menus, "Fish Market" is a timely, useful book for even the most novice cook.
A pescetarian for over 15 years and writer for more than 20 years, Hunt’s articles have appeared in such publications as The Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and Baltimore Sun and online at Zester Daily and Yahoo! Shine. She has also contributed entries to the food encyclopedia, "Entertaining from Ancient Rome to the Super Bowl" (Greenwood Press, 2007) and worked as a recipe tester and photographer. Hunt divides her time between New York City and an 1801 farmhouse on the outskirts of Philadelphia, Pa.
