Al Brown's homage to fish - catching , cooking and eating treasures of the water.

Al Brown can be counted on to find and share great New Zealand cuisine. In Go Fish Al combines his two great passions - cooking and fishing - and brings us more than 100 exceptional fish and shellfish recipes. Covering crustaceans, shellfish and fin fish of many varieties, Go Fish is the ultimate guide to sourcing and cooking fish.

Showing passion and respect for our cuisine and delivering it with uncomplicated excellence, Al's recipes are all about simplicity, yet sophistication, character and sometimes an element of surprise.

Stunningly photographed by Kieran Scott, Go Fish is the must-have cookbook for every New Zealand household. It takes us back to the simple days when a great meal could be had simply by casting your line from the dinghy. It's about getting back to the fundamentals of life - of enjoying the environment around us and making the most of what we have.

Al Brown has loved fishing since he was young, from days fishing with his dad in the holidays, and he still loves nothing better than fishing with his mates or his kids. Al is the acclaimed Wellington chef and co-owner of Logan Brown - one of New Zealand's top restaurants. He's one of the presenters of award-winning TV show 'Hunger for the Wild' and author of the successful cookbook of the same name. As a culinary ambassador for New Zealand Trade & Enterprise since 2003 he also helps to promote New Zealand cuisine overseas.
