Fishmongery Skills Renewed In The UK

Interesting audio program from the BBC Food Programme series for those who love fish.

The program asks, have we lost the art of handling, preparing and cooking fresh fish?

Program is about 30 minutes...hope you enjoy it. Comments are encouraged.

I have often wondered how many of the "chefs" on food network could clean a fish. I would imagine many of them can barely filet one.

I do hope you listened to the audio program. I am a fan of the show as they always have interesting topics. I agree with your comments about "celebrity chefs" . I doubt even one has caught a fish, let alone cleaned it and filleted it. Actually the only "celebrity chef" I respect is Anthony Bourdain as he had enough sense to get out of the kitchen and become a full time celebrity.
