Bouillabaisse

I don’t really enjoy eating fish much. I don’t quite know what it is about piscine flesh that doesn’t really engage my senses in the same way a freshly roasted lamb knuckle, sizzling sirloin or grilled bit of chicken does. Maybe it’s the bones I inevitably fight with, that slight mercurial taste that its skin imparts or the fact that it’s generally so plain, but for the most part, I don’t like fish. And yet, one of my favourite things on this planet to eat is a Provencal fish stew; bouillabaisse.

Though the traditional Marseille bouillabaisse would have you eat the fish after the soupy stew, more often than not a bouillabaisse now would give you the whole lot; a veritable aquarium of firm and fleshy fish (followed later in the cooking pot by daintier, more delicate fish) and shellfish, cooked up and flavoured with, garlic, tomato, fennel and saffron and served with crisp, crusty buttered country bread. Managing to be light and delicate, but full of flavour, a great bouillabaisse is an experience.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
