Synopsis

Hooked delves into the exciting fishing adventures of celebrated chef, restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix, opening with the story of his first catch, age 8, being cooked for supper by his grandmother - the catalyst for what has become his passion. You will be regaled with tales of extraordinary fishing expeditions at home and afar, from the banks of the Dumfriesshire coast to Tuscany's Porto Ercole, with each trip ending with a feast - be it the catch of the day (if all went to plan), or something found and foraged if the need arises (always have a back-up plan). Hooked features both exotic and humble dishes such as Hot stone salmon, Barracuda & pineapple ceviche, Trout kedgeree and Mahi mahi sashimi. Weaved into the narrative are the infectious, and unexpected, joys of fishing and what it does for you. Hint: it's not necessarily about the fish.
