The American Lighthouse Cookbook: The Best Recipes and Stories from America's Shorelines

This book would make a great holiday gift for a lighthouse buff, especially one who loves to cook.

In a sense, this is two books in one: a compendium of regional recipes, including many of my personal New England favorites (mmmm...stuffies!), and a primer on some of our most historic and beloved beacons.

Of course, for families living at lighthouses, procuring, preparing, and enjoying local food was an enormous part of daily life, and that legacy is what ties this volume together.

No lighthouse buff or lover of coastal cuisine should miss this one-of-a-kind volume.
