Even though there are hundreds of types of fish for sale, most chefs know only a few varieties. That's where Barton Seaver--Esquire magazine's 2009 Chef of the Year--comes in. By combining all manner of fish with loads of fresh produce, he fosters sustainability both in the sea and on the farm. Organized by season, For Cod and Country features only fish caught in those months (plus “a fifth season” for farmed fish), along with ideas for preparation, seasonings, and lists of alternate fish to substitute in inventive new dishes.
