Award winner Jenny Jefferies is the author of the book 'For the Love of the Sea II.'

Following the course of its predecessor, which won the Guild of Food Writers Award for Best Self-Published Work in 2022, this sequel – which has been endorsed by Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw – celebrates Britain’s  coastline through the people, produce, and practices that define it, and has been hailed as a “a seafood odyssey”.

Stories and recipes feture from all around the diverse coastal communities of the UK, from fishmongers to foragers and basket weavers to marine scientists - with The Fish Works playing its part in the national story celebrating the British seafood community and their food.

A central theme of this book is advocacy for sustainability and education.
