Overview

When author Jennifer Brennan lived in Guam, she saw and sampled the bounty of delights that can only be found in the lush Pacific Islands: exotic meats, unusual seafoods, and extraordinary fresh fruits and vegetables, all brought together with flavors and spices in delicious new combinations.

Tradewinds and Coconuts is a cookbook, a reminiscence, and a colorful glimpse of island living. Inside the home cook will learn about:

* Oceanic appetizers-from hors d'oeuvres to stewy soups to luscious tropical salads
* Foods from in and around the sea-tantalizing recipes made from mollusks, crustaceans, amphibious reptiles, and Pacific Ocean fish
* Mouth-watering meats-from the familiar to the exotic
* Authentic preparation-cooking in an earth-pit oven
