By regional author Katie Moose. Nantucket's rich heritage with the sea brings a wealth of good dishes that mingle the flavors of a variety of cultures and the fresh vegetables and fruits now so abundant on the island. Recipes from the earliest Native Americans to the modern day offer the individual plenty of reasons to cook and enjoy Nantucket's bounty. Who can resist succulent scallops just out of the bay, with only a dash of lime juice or clams so fresh they melt in your mouth? The recipes are easy, yet elegant and for all occasions. Menus assist in planning meals and marketing.
The book includes a history of the island, its inns and restaurants, and insights into some of the dishes. The author, descended from Nantucket's oldest families, on both sides, shares some of her family secrets. "Nantucket's Bounty" will appeal to the determined cook and the armchair reader as well.
