Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0811814726, Hardcover)Susan Simon has lived in Europe, New York City, and on Nantucket, a windswept island off the New England coast. In The Nantucket Table she talks about the island, shares stories of her travels elsewhere, and presents recipes that weave flavors from Italy and beyond together with bluefish, cranberries, and other local island ingredients. Initially, agriculture and fishing supported life on Nantucket. During the 19th century, whaling drew away the island's men while creating one of the wealthiest ports in the world. When whaling declined, Nantucket residents settled back into scalloping and local farming. Meanwhile, this island also developed into a world famous summer resort.
Simon's recipes are mostly easy, summery dishes based on fresh vegetables, ripe fruits, and seafood, all combined with clear flavors. Her love for Italy shows in glowing Carrot Crostini, or Spaghetti with Fresh Tomato Sauce, or White Beans and Roasted Broccoli. She features seasonal produce in Gingery Lime-Blackberry Tart, and more local dishes, too. Anyone with a garden, access to a farmstand, and good, fresh fish can enjoy the sensuous, sunny food in The Nantucket Table. This quasi coffee-table book is also filled with tempting food photos and Tom Eckerle's wonderful pictures of bright Nantucket days.
