A big feed of herring (known as tommy ruffs on Australia’s east coast) is an intrinsic part of beach-holiday nostalgia for thousands of Aussies.

With Hooked on Herring you now have the perfect collection of recipes from around the world, catering for all palates, including the kids – you won’t ever hear them saying not herring again!

This collection of recipes and travel anecdotes has been gathered from years of travel and visits to fish markets, fish stands, cafes, restaurants and the kitchens of hospitable locals.

Some of the recipes are light and healthy, with lots of fresh herbs, salads and vegetables. Others make heartier meals, just right for those evenings when you are really hungry after a hard day playing in the summer sun!

The recipes in this collection will surprise and delight you. Beautifully designed by award winning designer Elissa Webb, this publication with its meticulous and exquisite illustrations will make an ideal Christmas present.


About the author:

Jacqueline Hagan was introduced to herring at an early age, growing up with a dad who loved to fish, and spending happy holidays with family and friends at their beach shack in Mandurah.

When she married a fishing enthusiast, they travelled the world for several years, returning to WA with their two sons, and handing down the pursuit of herring to the next generation.

Jacqueline now lives in Fremantle with the fisherman, spending each summer on their boat at Garden Island, and in winter travelling to Europe and South America in search of new and exciting recipes for the next summer’s herring catch

Hooked on Herring by Jacqueline Hagan is published by Margaret River Press (WA, Nov 2016; 140pp; RRP A$34.00). It is available at some fishing stores and direct from the publisher here »
