LizC,

If the link doesn't work type French fish names into Google.

Go to bottom of the page click on Sea Fish, "contents" and "index" didn't work for me.

Hello,   If ever you can lay your hands on a copy of "Madame Prunier's Fish Cook Book" you'll find not only the fish but also how to cook them and how to make the sauces.   The one I picked up once upon a time was published by Penguin in 1955 - when I was far too young to cook anything - and is invaluable.  Good hunting.

I tried Bald Eagle's book site but they didn't come up with Mme. Prunier's book.  The only other clue is that it was a Penguin Handbook 1963 edition number PH 89 price 4/6d.   No other number available!!!

Dear all,


confuse the local fishmonger with your pronunciations in Breton from this site http://www.kervarker.org/en/useful_phrases_01_Boued.html


Vive la difference!!


cheers

bob,


I have enough problems saying my hamlets name, Penn an Neac'h! The last word when I say it causes great amusement amongst my Breton friends!

The weapons-grade, industry-standard reference for this subject, containing descriptions, names in many langauges and some damn good recipes, is Alan Davidson's magisterial North Atlantic Seafood.

And just so  you know, taupe is not a mole, it's shark but I don't know which kind of shark.   The taupes which drilll holes and make humps in the garden are moles.   I'm going to be computerless for ten days which will come as a relief to many.   A bientot.
