Farewell Kitchen - Paul's Cioppino

Having found an old recipe booklet from 1998 when Farewell Harbour Lodge was known as Farewell Harbour Resort, we thought it would be great to post one of the popular dishes. We have tried it and it is very simple and delicious! The below quantities serves 6 people.
