Rich buttery lobster, fried clams, and thick chowders are the foods that taste of long summer days in New England.

Take a bite of New England's clam shack traditions with nearly 100 recipes gathered from the region's best casual seafood eateries.

Complete Guide to Buying and Cooking
Paperback ISBN: 0028631528
Fish: The Complete Guide to Buying and Cooking is a book that simplifies, once and for all, the process of preparing fish. Organized in an easy-reference, A-Z format, Fish gives you the culinary lowdown on seventy kinds of fish and shellfish commonly found in American supermarkets and fish stores. Each entry describes how the fish is sold (fillets, steaks, whole, salted), other names it goes by, how the fish should look, and buying tips. Fish begins with general guidelines on how to store, prepare, and cook fish, whether sauteing, frying, grilling, or smoking, and you will find easy-to-follow illustrations of such important basics as how to gut and fillet a fish. Fish also includes up-to-the-minute information on the health benefits of fish in our diet. In addition, there are more than five hundred recipes and variations, all of which use low-fat, high-flavor ingredients to accent the intrinsic natures of the individual fish rather than mask them. And the vast majority of the recipes are ready in less than thirty minutes.
12 Bones Smokehouse
A Mountain BBQ Cookbook
Hardcover ISBN: 0760347263
For lovers of the 12 Bones restaurant - including President Obama - as well as fans of progressive 'cue, 12 Bones Smokehouse includes signature recipes and techniques for ribs, pulled pork, and all the fixin's. When 12 Bones Smokehouse opened Asheville, North Carolina, in the early 2000s, many doubted that it would succeed. The food wasn't 100-percent traditional or 100-percent true to Carolina barbecue's heritage. A decade later, 12 Bones has become a local institution that rivals the Biltmore Estate in popularity. In fact, it's 12 Bones alone that has been on President Obama's itinerary all three times he's passed through Asheville. 12 Bones Smokehouse is true to the spirit of the place. Everything is made from scratch, the meats are smoked long and slow over select hardwoods, and cornbread is not optional. Simple ingredients and lots of care make the best food. This cookbook includes over 60 recipes, ranging from beet salad to smoky collards to sauces, rubs, and dessert, built for the modern palate - blueberry-chipotle, pineapple, and brown sugar and spice are just a few of the rib flavors. Traditional sauces, like Carolina vinegar, are punched up with fresh jalapeno and cilantro. Ribs, pork, bacon, beef, and turkey recipes abound, but 12 Bones Smokehouse is also uniquely vegetarian-friendly. From sides that have a symbiotic relationship with meat (potato salad with potatoes that never touch meat but benefit from the smoking process) to completely vegetarian creations (jalepeno cheddar grits, anyone?), there's something for diners of every stripe - vegetarian or carnivore.
