I don't think I have a "signature dish" at all. But I sure know how to make a cracking good traditional Kalymnian seafood meze.

Fried octopus, squids, schrimps, lobster tails, grilled fresh sardines and scrumptious homemade chips done in olive oil. All fresh out of the sea, bargained hard for at Pothia's fish market, taken home and cooked to perfection. And this is what I do the best as dear Mummy taught me.

By the way, I also make rag rugs (back of chair).

We sometimes have this for Christmas, because seafood is very plentiful at that time of the year. But I love seafood at any time of the year. It's just so lovely and the fun of it is haggling down at the market.

I wish we got fresh fish here. I'm too far from the ocean. Lots of people tell me it is fresh, but I lived in Copenhagen and it doesn't meet my standards. I used to buy fish that were fished that day.

Be a little tenacious in finding really fresh fish in your city. There's got to be a way. Why not ask a bistro manager where he gets his fish from? Or, Google up Dragør fishmongers for example, grab a pen and log any phone numbers. Because once you find a source, they'll get it to you because it's all good trade for them.

I'm in the motorbike trade, and go worldwide on the 'net in my search for specialist parts. So why not fish?

Fish is already expensive. It will be way out of my price range if they have to fly it here.

Tom, you'd be welcome to eat with me anytime. And bring your clam chowder with piggy and its apple sauce and butter gravy - now that just sounds amazing.
