Captures the magical world of Lake Michigan cottage life with seasonal recipes inspired by the fresh, delicious food of our fertile local farms and cool crystal waters.” — Maureen Abood, author of Rose Water & Orange Blossoms “Part cookbook and part culinary travel guide, this book unearths the simple charms and gustatory delights that grace the oft-overlooked shores of America’s Third Coast.” — Lori Fredrich, food writer and author of Milwaukee Food
Food writer Levin (Chicago Chef's Table) wants to put home cooks in a vacation state of mind with this summery collection of recipes from the shores of Lake Michigan. Focusing on popular tourist destinations, the author profiles local businesses and food producers and shares tempting regional dishes such as beer cheese soup, pasties two ways, panfried perch with tartar sauce, and Door County cherry pie. An index makes it easy to browse recipes by type, and there are plenty of full-color photographs to whet readers' appetites. VERDICT Equally useful for cooking and travel planning, Levin's latest will appeal to Lake Michigan dwellers, Midwesterners, armchair travelers, and coastal food enthusiasts. Essential for regional collections.
