Dan The Fish Man

Spreading the word at Tavistock

I'm really enjoying building relationships with new customers at Tavistock market. Here's a wonderful letter I've just received from one of my new 'regulars':

Hi Dan

A quick note to express my thanks for the fish we bought yesterday in Tavy.

My youngest daughter is not a fussy eater but tends to eat like a sparrow. The John Dory looked quite fearsome once cooked, but I followed your instructions and it tasted wonderful.

Suffice to say, both my girls ate my share as well. BUT... most surprising of all, my youngest ate the eyeballs! Once finished, she proceeded to take apart the skeleton too. All good.

I am certain that your chat at the stall each Saturday is helping my girls to understand fish, and certainly helping me cook more and fear less.

Thank you

Best wishes



That's very pleasing! I'm delighted that my mission to encourage people, young and old, to enjoy the harvests of our West Country seas is working. Let's all keep it up!
