The Nantucket Table

By Susan Simon
Photographs by Tom Eckerle

ISBN 0811814726
8-1/4 x 9 in; 168 pp; 75 color photographs; hardcover

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.
