The first night of the Here’s One I Prepared Earlier chef series, presented by Alice Zaslavsky & FANE. 

Pioneering chef Josh Niland appears live on stage for the release of his newest book, Take One Fish. The once-in-a-generation culinary master of all things fish, with a profound knowledge of both sustainable practices and the ultimate representation of seafood.

Described by Nigella Lawson as a genius, at 32 Josh has captured public and professionals alike with globe spanning accolades.

Forget everything you thought you knew about fish cookery. This conversation will explore his scale-to-tail philosophy and approach to ethical eating, providing unprecedented insight into what is often misrepresented as a limitless resource.

Hosted by award-winning writer and ABC Culinary Correspondent Alice Zaslavsky, this is sure to be an unmissable experience with a prodigious talent already reaching the dizzying heights of the immortalised hospitality legends. 

Ticket + Book Bundle

With flair, colour and bucket loads of flavour, Take One Fish unpacks each of Josh's 15 fish to reveal their true culinary potential, from swordfish cotoletta to pot au feu, to tuna mapo tofu to an ethereal raw flounder. Celebrate the drips, crunchy bits, burnt edges and imperfections that are so central to Josh’s mission – to get more people having fun with fish ingenuity every day.

Book can be picked up from the Readings bookshop counter at City Recital Hall.
