who is bart?
It all started by the love for cooking and eating seafood. When I realized over 12 years ago most of our oceans are fished to the limit or overfished I started to travel in the search for the most sustainable fishing communities on the globe. I lived, fished and cooked together with dozens of lovely fisheries to learn and understand how we should consume seafood for the future. It’s much fun to do!
In short, you can say I am a seafood chef who shares his search for the best fish recipes, a passionate sustainable fishing advocate who shares his adventurous fishing stories and an entrepreneur who makes the best sustainable seafood products accessible.
Since 2009 I share my journey, travels and recipes in cookbooks I write. Writing and developing recipes is a great thing to do and am very grateful many of them are internationally published and awarded. My latest tinned fish cookbook just came out and currently I am busy writing my next project: veggie’s & fish to be released in the Netherlands end of 2020.
Bart’s fish tales
It was early 2014 when we launched the world’s shortest cooking show on instagram. Here you’ll find super short recipe videos of me cooking at the fisheries itself. A few months later I was approached by the one and only jamie oliver who asked me to join his food tube network cooking channel (youtube). This also was the base to start my own youtube channel. At bart’s fish tales you will find all kind of seafood recipes, fishing behind the scenes and tips & tricks.
