It takes a lot of hard work putting together the details needed to help people guide their way through seafood cookery. To demystify seafood and take the scare factor out of its preparation is a huge service to the home cooking community. Chef Bernard and chef Ron have really done an amazing job compiling a thorough series of interesting and simple to follow recipes that will guide you through the world under the sea. My motto has always been to “Live a life in liquid” and these guys are doing it!

Chef Bernard and Chef Ron have written one of the best seafood cookbooks of the century. The culinary creativity and details in this sensational book brings out the “true wonders and flavors of the sea”. Having developed many commercial recipes for the production of consumer seafood myself, it was totally impressed with the contents of Two Chefs, One Catch. This book will educate readers and delights “foodies” everywhere. I can’t wait for the sequel! Thank you for enlightening me and your continued contribution to the culinary world.“Stay Hungry, My Friends”!

On his frequent visits to Australia, Bernard and I have met and talked passionately about food, our origins, our shared links with farm life, and starting work at a young age. So it is no surprise to me that Bernard and Ron have produced a beautiful, interesting book, which is the sum of life experiences, dedication, passion and serious research, yet studded with lightness and humor. Bravo, amico mio!”
