A Nantucket summer is sunny, salty days at the beach, ocean views, sea breezes, and casual feasts with friends and family. Susan Simon's love of Nantucket, with its picket fences and sandy lanes, its baked clams, lobsters, and heavenly chowders, shines through on every page of The Nantucket Table. Her recipes are clear, easy, fresh, and delicious, while Tom Eckerle's photographs complete the picture of the sweetest, laziest season on the island. Though the book features the specialties of Nantucket, these are not unusual ingredients: Susan Simon wants you to enjoy simple food at its seasonal peak. If you can find a farmer's market and a fresh fish shop, there's no reason why you can't create that special taste of Nantucket, wherever you happen to live.

Review:

Susan Simon has lived in Europe, New York City, and on Nantucket, a windswept island off the New England coast. In The Nantucket Table she talks about the island, shares stories of her travels elsewhere, and presents recipes that weave flavors from Italy and beyond together with bluefish, cranberries, and other local island ingredients. Initially, agriculture and fishing supported life on Nantucket. During the 19th century, whaling drew away the island's men while creating one of the wealthiest ports in the world. When whaling declined, Nantucket residents settled back into scalloping and local farming. Meanwhile, this island also developed into a world famous summer resort.

Simon's recipes are mostly easy, summery dishes based on fresh vegetables, ripe fruits, and seafood, all combined with clear flavors. Her love for Italy shows in glowing Carrot Crostini, or Spaghetti with Fresh Tomato Sauce, or White Beans and Roasted Broccoli. She features seasonal produce in Gingery Lime-Blackberry Tart, and more local dishes, too. Anyone with a garden, access to a farmstand, and good, fresh fish can enjoy the sensuous, sunny food in The Nantucket Table. This quasi coffee-table book is also filled with tempting food photos and Tom Eckerle's wonderful pictures of bright Nantucket days.

About the Author:
