Savannah Classic Seafood (Classic Recipes)by Janice Shay
Synopses & Reviews
A top tourist destination with a knack for Southern hospitality, Savannah has a lot to offer when it comes to preparing fresh, irresistible seafood. Presenting a flavorful array of beautifully photographed crab, fish, oyster, shrimp, and scallop dishes, these selections provide a gustatory tour from the best and most-beloved Savannah restaurants and chefs. The traditional Low Country favorites in this epicurean collection reflect the influence of the Irish, English, Spanish, French, and Gullah that make the area so particularly unique. Representing the finest the city has to offer, the entries range from Sundae Cafe's Seafood Cheesecake and Cafe 37's Oyster Stew to the Crab Shack's Capt'n Crab's Low Country Boil and Uncle Bubba's Oyster House's Crab-Stuffed Flounder.As with Pelican's other Classic Cookbook Series selections, this collection of recipes also serves as a local restaurant guide, boasting a memorable anecdote or history for each restaurant and dish. Each page invites the reader to enter one of Savannah's restaurants and experience the historic city's scrumptious culinary offerings. The Olde Pink House, established circa 1771; the Olympia Cafe on River Street; and the celebrated Wilkes House, among dozens of others, are just some of the establishments featured.ABOUT THE AUTHORAn award-winning book packager and designer, Janice Shay has worked for such magazines as Rodale's Scuba Diving magazine, Third Coast magazine, and Atlanta Magazine.

"Continuing her exploration of Southern cooking, Shay (Savannah Classic Desserts, Charleston Classic Desserts) turns her attention to seafood in this terrific collection of signature dishes from the restaurants of coastal Savannah. Organized by primary ingredient (crab, shrimp, oysters, fish, and scallops), Shay incorporates crave-inducing classics like She Crab Soup, Oyster Po Boys and a classic low country boil alongside new favorites like a rich seafood cheesecake drizzled with a balsamic reduction sauce, a Sweet-Potato Crusted Grouper with Peach Chutney, Pickled Shrimp, and an elegant Scallop Ceviche served atop an avocado mousse. Each contributing restaurant is profiled, including the culinary home of local celebrity Paula Deen (Lady & Sons, which offers their Crab-Stuffed Shrimp recipe). Directions are specific and easy to follow, ensuring home cooks will replicate dishes without worry. Though slim, this mouthwatering collection is stuffed with satisfying Southern dishes that will keep any seafood lover coming back. Color photos."
