Tradewinds and Coconuts: A Reminiscence and Recipes from the Pacific Islands Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When author Jennifer Brennan lived in Guam, she saw and sampled the bounty of delights that can only be found in the lush Pacific Islands: exotic meats, unusual seafoods, and extraordinary fresh fruits and vegetables, all brought together with flavors and spices in delicious new combinations.

Tradewinds and Coconuts presents the cuisine and culture of the Pacific Islands with recipes, personal anecdotes, descriptions of native ingredients, and original artwork. Tradewinds and Coconuts is a cookbook, a reminiscence, and a colorful glimpse of island living. Inside the home cook will learn about:
-- Oceanic appetizer — from hors d'oeuvres to stewy soups to luscious tropical salads
-- Foods from in and around the sea — tantalizing recipes made from mollusks, crustaceans, amphibious reptiles, and Pacific Ocean fish
-- Mouth-watering meats — from the familiar to the exotic
-- Authentic preparation — cooking in an earth-pit oven.
