    This book is absolutey lovely. I received it as a gift when I first moved to Annapolis and I have given it as gifts several times over the past six years. The recipes are unique and always a crowd pleaser. The book itself is worthy of space on the coffee table. It's a conversation piece.

    A Must for Entertaining

    This has delicious, easy recipes for entertaining. I like how the book is divided into sections such as "Day on the Bay", Vineyard Fare", etc., with corresponding menus. It has great pictures of Annapolis as well. Makes a great gift!

    Favorite Regional Cookbook

    I recently purchased this cookbook and already I love it! I impressed party guests with the tomato goat cheese napoleons, hot mango brie, and mushroom tarts, and the best part is that all three are actually quite easy to make. The book itself is beautiful, with the luscious pictures inspiring me to try more recipes. I'm excited to continue exploring this very up-to-the-minute, fun cookbook.

    Highlights of the Chesapeake Bay

    This is an excellent coffee-table book but also has fantastic recipes for entertaining. My favorites include the Blue Cheese Nibbles, Almond Cheddar Bars, Kebobs and the Chocolate Cherry Toffee cookies. All of these recipes are hits at any party, and they're always the first to be eaten! Proceeds from the book support programs in the community so it's a win-win.

    Great Go-to cookbook for all occasions

    This cookbook never seems to disappoint! Every chapter has recipes I can't wait to try and whenever I cook something from it and bring to a party I am sure to bring the recipe with me as I am always asked for it. I have given this cookbook as a bridal shower gift, birthday gift and for Christmas. With Fall right around the corner I can't wait to make the Smokey Autumn Salad and Buffalo Wing Dip. Everyone who uses this cookbook or eats from it loves it!

    Great cookbook

    I love giving this cookbook as a gift. Try the party bread recipe on p.125. It is a great dish to bring to a potluck. I always have a crowd of people waiting to try it!

    Official Cookbook of Annapolis!

    This book is wonderful and was just named an "Official Cookbook of the City of Annapolis" by the mayor and city council. It has also been recently named a "Finalist" in the General Cookbook category of the Best Books Award by USA Book News.

    Great as a business tool!

    I have used this book as a gift to business associates and customers. The book is "coffee table" quality... it looks great, and has appealing recipes. Your customers will always remember you and your company when they frequently look at this book. The pictures and text of the book capture the place and tastes that are Annapolis.

    Great gift

    This gorgeous book really captures the feeling of Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay. I moved to the area not too long ago, and have given it as a gift to friends and relatives across the U.S. Many of the recipes are very easy - like the Rocky Road Squares - delicious!

    Beautiful book with delicious recipes!

    This book makes for easy entertaining as recipes are grouped together into fantastic themed menus ranging from a Chesapeake Bay Crab Fest to Tailgating to a Spring picnic menu. It's also great for everyday cooking though. Little facts about Maryland abound and nicely complement the layout of the book. You don't have to be a gourmet chef to be able to make these either, they range from easy to more complicated. I made Sandy Point Sand Tarts as Christmas gifts and everyone wanted the recipe! Each recipe I've tried has be so delicious. If you've never had a Junior League cookbook, this one will not disappoint, and if you have, this is a terrific addition to your collection.

    Beautiful book with great recipes that I can acutally make - I am by no means a gourmet chef! Love the pics and party ideas as well.

    Great Recipes & photos

    I love this book. Not only does it have great photos of all the food and wonderful descriptions of different Annapolis events throughout the year, it also has terrific recipes. The Sweet Vegetable Dip, White Corn Salad, Peppercorn Tenderloin and YumYum Bars are among my favorites!!
