I want to keep this simple. I live in Southeastern Massachusetts.I see Cuttyhunk,and the other Elizabeth Islands off the coast of Westport, Massachusetts, every day. The Islands, waters, and fish described in this book ring completely true! This man knew not only the local seafare but also the Portuguese seafaring culture that makes so many of his recipes "pop"! You can't go wrong if you want a completely authentic cookbook for the gifts from the Massachusetts' coast!
A great book with some wonderful recipes, a must for the seafood lover.
Wonderful and charming book. Has great illustrations by Masch. You can tell he loves what he's talking about, and is having a blast sharing his knowledge with other people.
wonderful reading.had a great sense of humor
Great cook book!
As a Montana native now living in Massachusetts, I've always felt a little out of my element in fish markets. I spend a lot of time vacationing on Cape Cod, but after all these years when I walk into a fish market I'm not really sure what to expect. What's in season? What do I do with the leftovers? I love great fresh food, simply prepared and this cookbook has given me the guidance I need to survive New England coastal cooking. In addition, the stories that accompany the recipes are entertaining and reflect the author's huge personality. Wish I cook with him someday!
I heard of Pops from a monthly article in a local fishing mag. A very homely person, pleasant guy. I can't think of a better book for people who want to take their catch from the water to the grill or pan for the first time. It's bare bones, but in a very tasty way. At no point will you look at these recipes and think "hell I'm not gonna gut the fish and THEN do all this prep for the cooking". Most likely you're going to gut the fish, throw some olive oil and garlic in a pan, and season the catch with salt and pepper. He's got a lot of side dishes and interesting sauces in their too. It's a good range of simple and filling recipes.
I gave this book to my fish-crazed son for his 14th birthday, thinking he might learn to "cook his catch" like the title suggests... and IT WORKED!! Delicious recipes for every kind of local fish (and then some) and many with substitute ingredients & variations suggested so we don't have to stress about shopping ahead of time. Easy to follow directions (think 14 yr. old boy) and nice illustrations & anecdotes. Don't hesitate to buy this book!
