Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A treasure trove of recipes, wine pairings and dinner menus, perfect for anyone who dreams of throwing an elegant yet casual dinner party with friends and family—in the inimitable Fire Island style.

Fire Island is an exotic retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and in the summer it becomes an oasis for weary New Yorkers. In The Fire Island Cookbook, food and travel writers Jeffrey Jenssen and Michael DeSimone—who know their way around a kitchen, a dining room, and the world—have put together a mouthwatering collection of meals using seasonal produce, for each weekend, from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Every chapter features a short introduction, followed by a virtual dinner party: Recipes for a full menu from appetizer to dessert, photos, serving suggestions, plating ideas, and wine pairings. While some meals are designed to be prepared in the morning, ignored all day while the cooks are at the beach, and then grilled and arranged as guests arrive, others are a little more elaborate, perfect for the weekend that would be otherwise ruined by rain.

Much more than a simple compendium of ingredients and techniques, The Fire Island Cookbook includes photographs of actual dinner parties, homes, tables, plates, landscapes, and beaches.

Whether Fire Island is a dream vacation, an occasional weekend destination, or the place you call home from May to September, readers are sure to enjoy this collection all year round.
