Fresher than fresh

 

Later I’ll make your mouths water with tales of fresh caught Lubina cooked over an open fire in Malaga and we’ll revisit the best steak in the world in Cordoba.  But first a word about the fresh.

On the next to last morning of my trip I scampered around the Vielle Port of Marseille trying to fill time before my 11am check-out. So with low expectations and one foot on the airplane I was stoked to wind things up with the highly aesthetic and very briny fish market at the foot of the port. The smallish operation of maybe twenty fish mongers showed me just why the seafood I’d eaten in Spain and in France was so sweet, so mild and oh so good for me.
 



 
 
It doesn't get fresher than this.

Where, except in seaside communities, can one get truly fresh fish? Once in Whole Foods, we heard a customer say "Is the Scottish salmon fresh?" without a hint of sarcasm. Your photographs highlight really fresh fish. How wonderful that you caught the market and the moment.

One can see why many European painters, including the Dutch masters, painted the way they did. There is something about low country light that makes images exceptional. Your first image, Steve, has that glorious feel to it. Wish we could can it! A lovely end to your journey. We look forward to more!
