Join award-winning artist, designer, writer and chef Jake Tilson as he travels the world on a quest to buy, prepare, and cook fish and seafood. In At The Deep End is an engaging personal story of discovery, one that Jake tells passionately as a new enthusiast and also visually as a photographer and designer.
From Venice to London, New York to Sweden, and Aberdeen to Sydney, Jake chronicles his journey in exhilarating detail. Whether cooking and eating Venetian bigoli with clams or New York crab cakes, Swedish soused herrings or Japanese sushi and sashimi, he effortlessly conjures up the worlds these dishes were born in. An evocative, marvelously layered exploration of Jake’s many experiences with fish, this unusual memoir/cookbook chronicles his progression from fish-phobic cook to seafood obsessive. It is to be read, savored, used and, above all, enjoyed.
