Billingsgate Market Cookbook

by C.J. Jackson

Billingsgate is the UK's largest and most famous inland fish market, offering buyers the opportunity to see the widest selection of fish in the United Kingdom. This London institution is steeped in history and tradition, and its origins can be traced back to 1327 when Edward III granted London's citizens a charter concerning the market rights of the City of London. Today Billingsgate Market is based in London's Docklands where, at 5 a.m. every Monday to Saturday, a bell is tolled and London's free and open market for all sorts of fish whatsoever opens for business.

This unique and exciting book celebrates the market's fascinating history and explores market life today. Amusing stories from the floor and facts and trivia about the market are combined with C.J. Jackson's invaluable advice on selecting fish, sustainability, techniques for fish preparation and over 80 delicious recipes. This is essential reading for anyone with a love of cooking and an interest in the history of one of London's greatest markets.

"CJ Jackson is the director of the Seafood Training School at Billingsgate Market which promotes fish as part of a healthy diet. This book proves she knows what sheÔÇÖs talking about. The background story of the market, illustrated by evocative black-and-white photographs, sets the scene for a practical and informative cookbook."
