ELAINE TAMMI & KARIN A. TAMMI present "Scallops: A New England Coastal Cookbook" (Book Rack)
At long last, a seafood cookbook devoted to New England’s most prized and valuable shellfish! With encouragement from cooking icon Julia Child, "scallop foodies" Elaine and Karin Tammi, a mother/daughter team, have written a cookbook about the scallop fishery. Scallops: A New England Coastal Cookbook is a one-of-a-kind cookbook weaving together some of the best scallop recipes in New England with interviews from Nantucket bay scallop fishermen, marine scientists, world-renowned chefs, shuckers, and sea scallopers to provide an insider’s view into these fisheries. The authors provide an exciting range of recipes from "Fusion" and "Contemporary French" to "Mediterranean" and "Asian," including appetizers, cold salads with warm dressings, baked, broiled, grilled, fried, sauteed, stir-fry, poached and tempura scallop recipes. These tantalizing recipes are accompanied by easy-to-identify symbols indicating dishes that can be prepared in thirty minutes or less and those containing fewer than six ingredients. Additionally, a portion of the funds from the sale of this cookbook will be donated to the Fishermen’s Emergency Relief Fund in New Bedford, MA.
We’ll be tasting some of these delectable recipes, so bring your appetite for scallops!
Elaine Tammi enjoys living by the sea in Sandwich, on Cape Cod, writing mysteries, reading and making scallop crafts. Karin Tammi is a shellfish biologist who manages a Shellfish Hatchery at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island. She researched bay scallop restoration at the University of Rhode Island and lives in Little Compton, RI.
