Our flat in Haga lies on one side of the
Rosenlund canal which zigzags its way
through to the heart Göteborg. Across the
water lies Fiskekyrkan, the covered fish
market intriguingly disguised as a church.
We became friendly with the stall holders
and began to talk about a book about the
market, its history and how it interacts with
the fishing trade on the West Coast of
Sweden. It was a totally absorbing project,
every day a delight, as we met fishermen,
traders, ice sellers, fish smokers, mussel
farmers and restaurateurs.
We interlaced the book with a collection of
Ingrid Eliasson's favourite fish recipes.
The book was published by Gullers and
won the Gourmand Book Design award for
Sweden in 2009.
