    Judith Claire Mitchell: IMG The Book That Refused to Write Itself



    I first heard of Fritz Haber in 1998, when I caught a snippet of a TV documentary about 20th-century scientists. The camera zoomed in on an image of... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just east of the village of Amagansett, toward Montauk, the towns fall away, the trees disappear, the sky opens up, and the lush farmland gives way to sand and reeds and scrub in an area called Napeague. On the ocean side of this lonely stretch of Route 27, nestled in front of dunes, a sign announces “Lunch” at a shingle-style diner. As New York magazine explained, “Anyone whos ever been to a Hampton has seen the Lobster Roll, better known as Lunch—a weather-beaten roadside clam bar, no-frills seafood restaurant, and geographic point of reference thats as much a part of the South Fork as the Montauk lighthouse.”

The Lobster Roll is indeed an institution, evocative of carefree, casual summer eating—exactly the type of food in this book:

• Soups and appetizers such as New England Clam Chowder, Lobster Bisque, and Steamers and Broth

• Rolls and sandwiches that include Lobster Rolls and the Perfect Hamburger

• Perfect summer entrées like Lavender-and-Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Barbecued Ribs, and Grilled Leg of Lamb with Garlic and Rosemary

• Refreshing sides such as Creamy Coleslaw, Pickled Squash and Mint Salad, and simple recipes for summertime treasures like corn, tomatoes, and new potatoes

• Desserts like Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie and Raspberry-Peach Cobbler as well as drinks such as Homemade Berry-Citrus Iced Tea and Fresh Strawberry-Mint Lemonade

The Lobster Roll has been dishing up this food for three decades to locals, tourists, and summer residents alike. This book is a celebration of that cuisine, with the restaurants preparations adapted for home cooks, plus non-restaurant recipes for quick, simple dishes that take advantage of summers fresh bounty. And the beautiful color photographs perfectly capture both the food and the region—this book is what summer looks like, and this food is what summer tastes like.

Review:

"For those eager for balmy weather and picnics on the beach, this little cookbook dishes out recipes designed for summer consumption....Recipes are simple and easy-to-prepare — though the authors throw in a few gimmes, such as recipes for S'mores and a straightforward Summer Fruit Salad — and the cooking tips interspersed throughout make this a delightful guide to summer eating." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"75 recipes that include both favorites from the restaurant and other easy, casual dishes, from the Lobster Roll (as well as a Clam Roll) to Grilled Citrus Chicken to Raspberry Peach Cobbler, with color photographs of the food and the summer scene throughout." Library Journal

Synopsis:
