Richard Ellis interview wets my appetite for more of 'Tuna: A Love Story'
While grabbing my second espresso of the day, I had the good luck to turn on the radio and catch the end of Richard Ellis interview by Leonard Lopate on his book Tuna: A Love Story (Borzoi Books-Knopf, July 2008).
The author wet my appetite for more details on his book with his description of the long trips that live Bluefins take (they can make it from Japan to California and back).
After being caught say in Massachusetts, they might be shipped to Japan to be sold and then come back to the US shores in some form to be found on some of the top restaurants tables.
The myth of fresh tuna was laid to rest (most is frozen)...
Rest of story on Serge the Concierge
