What does cooking mean to you?
I’m cooking for my family. I like to use healthy and sustainable products. Whether it’s meat, fish or vegetables, to me it is important to know where products come from and how they are produced.
What was the first thing that came to your mind when you heard about South Georgia Toothfish?
I heard about it from a friend and that made me curious. I have to confess though… I did not even know where South Georgia was located! But after some ‘googling’ around I found out that this South Georgia Toothfish is being caught near Antarctica.
Can you describe the taste of this fish?
The South Georgia Toothfish has a buttery, creamy taste. I can’t compare it with any other fish. Once cooked it has beautiful white flakes that melt on your tongue, supremely delicious!
