Rich buttery lobster, fried clams, and thick chowders are the foods that taste of long summer days in New England. Fresh sweet seafood, simply prepared, brings back warm afternoons and cool salty evenings on the beaches of Cape Cod, Maine, Connecticut, and the North Shore of Massachusetts, where local clams were first battered, deep fried, and served up with creamy, tangy tartar sauce. Simple authentic coastal fare doesn't get any better than in the second edition of Brooke Dojny's culinary tribute, The New England Clam Shack Cookbook. Take a bite of New England's clam shack traditions with nearly 100 recipes gathered from the region's best casual seafood eateries. Here are all New England classic seafood preparations, from clam chowder to lazy man's lobster. All the sides and sweets are here too, as well as the names and addresses of more than 100 eateries, plus three regional weekend itineraries for the true clam shack devotee.
