Introduction by Anthony Bourdain
Provincetown's best-known and most-admired chef Howard Mitcham combines delectable recipes and delightful folklore to serve up a classic in seafood cookbooks.
Read about the famous (and infamous!) Provincetown fishing fleet, the adventures of the fish and shellfish that roam Cape Cod waters, and the people of Provincetown—like John J. Glaspie, Lord Protector of the Quahaugs.
Then treat yourself to Cape Cod Gumbo, Provincetown Paella, Portuguese Clam Chowder, Lobster Fra Diavolo, Zarzuela, and dozens of other Portuguese, Creole, and Cape Cod favorites. A list of fresh and frozen seafood substitutes for use anywhere in the country is a unique feature of this lively book.
You'll learn the right way to eat broiled crab and the safe way to open oysters. You'll even learn how to cook a sea serpent!
