The Eastern Shore Cookbook
Once again, celebrated cookbook author Whitey Schmidt welcomes the reader to his beloved Eastern Shore. This hallowed culinary region nestles between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Through the centuries, it has produced countless mouthwatering recipes. Crab bisques...Oyster fritters...Clam bakes...Beaten biscuits...Salads with locally grown melons and vegetables...the list goes on. The Eastern Shore Cookbook is Whitey's 11th book dedicated to Bay country cooking. Inside you will find 210 blue-ribbon recipes. Some of them come straight from the wooden drawers of Eastern Shore farm homes. Some of them come from the men working on the wharves of places like Onancock, Virginia and Rock Hall, Maryland. As you sample each scrumptious recipe, you'll be swept away to the Eastern Shore itself. Whitey's 300-plus color photographs take you to church suppers...roadside stands...crab shanties and tarry wharves...and small towns across the Shore.
