  • Summary

    Chefs Ron Oliver and Bernard Guillas of the renowned Marine Room in La Jolla, CA have released the follow-up to their popular self-published cookbook, Two Chefs, One World. Their new book, Two Chefs, One Catch, focuses exclusively on the bounty of the sea, and how to prepare it masterfully for every fish lover you know.   The ancient coastal city of Taranto is located on the Salentina Peninsula in Puglia (the region that forms part of the heel of Italy’s boot), overlooking the bay, where three sides of land face inward on the Mar Grande, the Mar Piccolo and the Ionian Sea. Because of its location and its fishing center, Taranto provides some of the country’s best seafood. At Piazza Fontana, the small fishing port sells sea urchin, octopus, bream, mussels and oysters farmed in the Mar Piccolo. Taranto’s signature oyster preparation is ostriche tarantine in tiella, simply baked in the shell with bread crumbs, parsley and olive oil. In our version we jazz it up by adding flavors of prosciutto, fennel and chile. As the locals would say, “Se non amate la vita, non si può godere di un ostrica!”—“If you don’t love life, you can’t enjoy an oyster!” Reprinted with permission from Two Chefs, One Catch
