Jersey Shore Cookbook
Jersey shore native and food blogger (JerseyBites.com) Deborah Smith's The Jersey Shore Cookbook: Fresh Summer Flavors from the Boardwalk and Beyond takes a Jersey shore restaurant recipe tour from Central to South Jersey stopping at all the great restaurants, markets, bakeries, diners, taverns and inns from Keyport to Cape May Point. Divided into 5 chapters by course, including breakfasts, starters and sides, soups and salads, and main courses and desserts, the cookbook features recipes for each popular eatery's signature dish and a profile of each restaurant. With an emphasis on local and fresh foods, the 50 recipe selection focuses primarily on seafood dishes but also covers Jersey classics like the Broad Street Diner in Keyport's Taylor pork roll based, "Breakfast Club Sandwich" and summer barbecue fare such as the "Blueberry Jack Bubba Hot Dog" from Bubba Dogs in Sea Isle City. These recipes are fresh, delicious and easily achieved at home or the cookbook can serve as a dining guide for visitors to the area. Filled with photographs of savory seafood dishes such as Grilled Bluefish and Black sea bass, rich desserts like Creme Brulee and Peach Panna Cotta and everything in between, it also includes evocative photos of the restaurants and other local scenes. The Jersey Shore Cookbook provides a pure, mouthwatering look at the best dining the shore has to offer that Jersey natives and out-of-towners will love! Published by Quirk Books.
