In Cook What You Love, Bob and Melinda bring food and people together in the kitchen and around the table. With simple ingredients, no-fuss instructions, and flavorful meals that can be prepared in a snap, this book celebrates the Blanchards’ knack for combining the sublime comforts of great food and great company with glimpses into their paradise.
Cook What You Love blends many of the Blanchards’ favorite recipes with anecdotes about how their love for food seeps into every part of life. Bob and Melinda’s transporting stories take you from making tortillas and salsa in the mountains of Mexico to discovering the combination of lime, coconut, and ginger in Thailand and grilling chicken and ribs at an Anguillan bike race. From Blue Cheese and Mango Bundles, Reggae Pork, and Pistachio-Crusted Goat Cheese Salad to Crunchy Coconut French Toast, Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, and Key Lime Pound Cake, every recipe merges the timeless flavors of the Blanchards’ classic New England roots with the rich influences of the Caribbean.
The delicious recipes are accompanied by expert cooking tips and, to make it easy, include prep and cooking times. Cook What You Love joins some of the Blanchards’ most celebrated restaurant recipes with their personal home-cooked favorites, creating an incredible breadth of both everyday and special-occasion dishes—all enlivened with their infectious enthusiasm for exploring new tastes, places, and friendships around the common bond of food.

We visited Anguilla on our honeymoon and the food was so great we bought a cook book and had it signed by the owner. I got home and tested out some of the recipes. We love the pumpkin woopie pies! I am making them this year for Thanksgiving. I highly recommend any of their cook books.
