Bart's Fish Tales

A fishing adventure in over 100 recipes

Bart's Fish Tales

In this unique and comprehensive book Bart van Olphen travels around the world to visit the most sustainable fisheries. Along with the world-renowned photographer David Loftus, Bart recounts his journey where he lived, fished and cooked with the men, women and children of the world's fishing communities. Highlighting fishermen who responsibly catch their fish and are an example to the rest of the world, Bart's enthusiasm for environmentally responsible fishing is prevalent throughout his recipes, underlining both how easy it is to cook delicious fish dishes, but also to help ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy it. In more than 100 recipes pulled from all over the world, Bart covers everything from a simple supper to a celebratory feast. From French classics like Salmon Gravlax and Salt-cod Brandade to Spanish Boquerones (pickled anchiovies), Canadian Crab Cannelloni and Sardinian Fregola Vongole (a pasta dish made with fresh clams) to Nasi Goreng (an Indonesian prawn stir-fry) and cooking with sea vegetables like samphire and seaweed to creating the perfectly zesty Ceviche, Bart offers clear descriptions and step-by-step instructions for preparing and cooking simple and more complicated fish dishes. So whether you are able to fillet and gut a red mullet or are a first-time feaster, you’ll find everything you need to know in this wonderful book. With extensive photography the book serves as both a guide to fish from around the world, telling the personal stories behind the fisheries, and a compilation of recipes that make the most of responsibly sourced fish for everyday, special occasions; now and for the future.

Diary of a Lone Twin

A Memoir

Diary of a Lone Twin

A heart-rending memoir of love, loss and the unique relationship twins share. More than thirty years ago, David Loftus’s cherished identical twin, John, passed away. Ever since, a day hasn’t passed without David feeling the loss. In 1987, after recovering from a brain tumour, John contracted meningitis and found himself back in hospital for treatment. David, as always, was by his side. They were opening their twenty-fourth birthday presents when a fatally miscalculated routine injection forced John into a coma. He died within two weeks. Over the past year, David has spent an hour every day remembering John and recording his story by hand. Diary of a Lone Twin is the product of that daily ritual – a powerful and deeply personal account that covers everything from enchanting and charmingly evoked childhood vignettes to the acute loneliness and raw pain that followed John’s death. In sharing this beautifully written diary, award-winning and internationally acclaimed photographer David Loftus provides a rare insight for anyone who wishes to understand the bond between identical twins, and the unique bereavement of a lone twin that few people will ever experience.
