A Nantucket summer is a cozy silvershingled cottage with roses climbing its trellised facade. It's sunny, salty days at the beach followed by a supper with friends. Nantucket is more than a small island with a rich history; it's a way of life. Susan Simon's love of Nantucket shines through on every page of 'The Nantucket Table'. Her recipes are clear, fresh, and delicious, while Tom Eckerle's photographs complete the picture of the sweetest, laziest season on the Island. Though The Nantucket Table features Island specialties, fresh summer food is its philosophy. Susan Simon's classically simple recipes allow all kinds of ingredients to shine at their seasonal peak. In this way, the best of the Nantucket lifestyle is accessible to everyone. If you can find a garden, a farm stand, or a fresh fish shop, you can re-create the magic of Nantucket, no matter where you live.
