http://discover.halifaxpubliclibraries.ca/?q=title:%22maritime%20seafood%22paul%20lucas"Focusing on soups and sauces that form the basis of most good recipes - which, of course are included here. Everything you need to know about making good soup stock - beef, pork, fish, veggie - and sauces - white, velouté, glace, fruit purée - then turning them into a soups and stews, risotto and bouillabaisse. Paul writes recipes like he's talking to you in your own kitchen. Whether it's common-sense stuff, like "There's no sense in wasting time in producing a fine dice of vegetables if your end product is going to be puréed," or quips like "When it comes to stocks, size does matter," Lucas adds as much zest to the writing of recipes as he does to the recipes themselves." - publisher
