Every year tens of thousands of people visit Mystic to see the fishing boats and ships, tour the 18th-century coastal village, and sample great seafood. Now here is Mystic Seafood, with more than one hundred great seafood recipes, both historical and contemporary, simple and elaborate, for oysters, clams, lobster, shrimp, cod, flounder, tuna, swordfish, and many other types of fish. Some of the recipes come from famous chefs and restaurants in the Mystic area; others were developed by the author, who is editor of Taste of the Seacoast magazine.Vintage photos of tall ships and scenes from New England's seafaring past are interspersed with the recipes, and sidebars--on such topics as the role of fishing in Colonial America, how to prepare a classic clambake, and the lobster's peculiar culinary history--make this not only a great cookbook for anyone who loves seafood but also a perfect sourvenir of Mystic Seaport.
