The Whole Fish Cookbook
New ways to cook, eat and think
The Whole Fish Cookbook is the bestselling cookbook that has changed the way we think about fish. Jamie Oliver called Josh Niland one of the most impressive chefs of a generation and Yotam Ottolenghi voted the book one of his favourites – ever. Add to that a swag of awards, including: the André Simon Food Book Award 2019; two James Beard awards in 2020 – Restaurant and Professional and the prestigious Book of the Year; and The Australian Book Industry Association’s Illustrated Book of the Year in 2020. The Whole Fish Cookbook was also shortlisted as debut cookbook of the year in the Fortnum & Mason food & drink awards in 2020 and longlisted as Booksellers’ choice in the adult non-fiction category by the Australian Booksellers’ Association. As well, photographer Rob Palmer won the Australian National Photographic Portrait Prize in 2020 with a stunning photo of Josh from the book.

A mind-blowing masterpiece from one of the most impressive chefs of a generation. — Jamie Oliver
The Whole Fish Cookbook, groundbreaking seafood chef Josh Niland reveals a completely new way to think about all aspects of fish cookery. From sourcing and butchering to dry ageing and curing, it challenges everything we thought we knew about the subject and invites readers to see fish for what it really is – an amazing, complex source of protein that can and should be treated with exactly the same nose-to-tail reverence as meat.
It features more than 60 recipes for dozens of fish species ranging from Smoked Marlin Ham Caesar Salad, Fish Cassoulet and Roast Fish Bone Marrow to – essentially – the The Perfect Fish and Chips. Many of us would like to eat more fish but worry about the environmental impact and often end up cooking the same old salmon fillet on repeat.
The Whole Fish Cookbook will soon have you embracing new types and will change the way you buy, cook and eat fish.
There is so much more to a fish than just the fillet, and it is indeed true what they say about there being more than just a handful of fish in the sea.
