Overview

Cape Cod, Massachusetts is, roughly, a 70-mile peninsula divided into 15 towns. It is one of the furthermost points of land in the eastern US, with its hooked arm jutting out 40 miles into the Atlantic Ocean. Some of the towns date back to the 1600s, and each has its own unique personality, history, and gastronomic adventure. Over the past several years, Cape Cod’s culinary landscape has evolved. Yes, there are still the delicious fried clams, fresh broiled or grilled fish, and lobster rolls that have always been favorites, but many of today’s chefs are reinventing these traditional foods with a slightly different twist. The huge resurgence and interest in organic and local farming in many parts of our country has also reached the Cape, and chefs here are connecting with farmers and growers and using many of their products. Today’s Cape presents a thriving and unique culinary landscape and Cape Cod Chef’s Table gives readers, locals, and visitors a new perspective on this culinary scene. With recipes for the home cook from the Cape’s celebrated eateries and purveyors along with beautiful full-color photos, Cape Cod Chef's Table is the ultimate gift and keepsake cookbook.
