Overview

What could be more enticing on a hot summer's day than to sit down to table covered with newspapers, fresh steamed crabs, Old Bay Seasoning, cole slaw and a cold beer. Or is it something more elegant that you're looking for - Beef Chez Conduit (beef tenderloin with Bearnaise sauce), fresh asparagus, new red potatoes, and pumpkin cheesecake. Getting hungry? Take a peak inside and you'll discover a region rich in culinary delights and history.

The Chesapeake Bay region offers an abundance of food from the Bay, fields and woods. Recipes come from the earliest Native Americans to the influx of international flavors. The recipes are elegant and easy, designed for many different occasions. Menus make for easy planning with all the recipes available in the cookbook.

The history chapter region captures the true traditions of the Bay, and an insight into the background of many of the dishes. The pictures capture the Chesapeake at its best - skipjacks, oystering, the marshes, and Mount Clare Mansion, built by Charles Carroll who married Margaret Tilghman, uniting two of the wealthiest and most prominent families in Maryland.
