Bottomfeeder by Taras Grescoe
Winner of The Mavis Gallant Prize for Non-Fiction in 2008
Bottomfeeder is an account of Taras Grescoe’s epicurean and ethically driven global quest for the perfect seafood dish. On his journey, Grescoe tours the world’s largest fish market with a marine biologist, takes celebrity chefs to task for putting threatened species on the menu and partakes in a few once-in-a-lifetime meals guaranteed to shock – and even kill – the palate. Much more than a screed against an often slippery fishing industry, however, Bottomfeeder is a food lover’s delight, written by an intrepid adventurer who loves to dish on what’s delicious, exciting and ethically digestible.
