Dover Sole

Perhaps the most famed culinary fish- Dover Sole.  The name just rolls off one’s tongue so elegantly.  This versatile, delicate, sweet-fleshed fish has taken a spotlight across the world. Its name – Solea – dates back to mythical lore, as the Greeks believed the fish “would form a fit sandal for an ocean nymph”.  Sole a la Meuniere was Julia Child’s first meal in France and caused her to have a culinary epiphany.  Although I haven’t had the luxury of eating a classic dish with Dover Sole, many fish dishes I have eaten have had similar ‘epiphany’ effects and feed my passion.
