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 cooking dozens of delectable dishes.

This London institution is steeped in history and tradition. 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.

'The Billingsgate Market Cookbook' will make engaging reading for anyone with a love of cooking fish and an interest in the history of one of London's greatest markets.
