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.
