Cookbook Digest–Ocean’s Best

We’ll be celebrating on Christmas Eve this year with a Seven Fishes dinner–a symbolic holiday meal that is meant to be a lean abstention from red meat. But leave it to Italian-Americans (or any humans, for that matter) to turn it into a feast.

If you need to up your fish game, check out these books. In Two if By Sea, Barton Seaver encourages you to buy local and diverse. Then he teaches you how to cook what you might think of as trash fish–mackerel, porgy, or mullet. He’d be right at home at our Seven Fishes table. In Fresh Fish, Jennifer Trainer Thompson offers a briny dose of New England–including a home-scaled clambake.
