Description: If you've ever feasted on delicious steamed crab, eagerly anticipated the arrival of the first soft-shell crabs in your market, or best of all, savored delicate crab cakes, then this is the cookbook for you. Margie Kauffman, owner of Chesapeake Bay Gourmet, makers of world-famous crab cakes and other prepared seafood delicacies, divulges the secrets and practical tricks of preparing crab for the table and shares over 100 of her favorite recipes. 

Here you'll find clear instructions and helpful hints on how to serve crab cakes in dozens of different ways. Whether with a Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, a Fruit Salsa or a twist on the classic remoulade using chipotle peppers, you'll find the perfect accompaniment in a special section devoted just to crab cakes. There's even a No-Fat Crab Cake for those with an eye on their waistline! 

Mixing authentic Chesapeake Bay culinary traditions with modern innovations, Margie goes on to provide you with easy-to-follow recipes for other types of crab dishes. From Lime Marinated Crab and Shrimp to Hot Crab Dip and Crab Imperial with Smithfield Ham to Bessie's Crab Pudding, she offers a multitude of delicious options, plus a dozen menus showcasing crab. 

And that's only the beginning! Margie is a wonderful, versatile cook and has also included a large selection of her other favorite recipes. Tantalizing appetizers, side dishes, and even desserts are found here. Main courses, such as Pasta with Smoked Salmon and Lemon Creme Fraiche and Braised Turkey Cordon Bleu are easy to prepare, yet very impressive. And the desserts will have your guests coming back for more, whether it's for Easy Apple Tart, elegant Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate Marquise or the surprisingly light but luscious Low-Fat White Chocolate Meringue with Strawberries. 

If you love crab, in any form, then this is the book you've been waiting for. And if you simply like to eat well, this book will be one you keep coming back to, again and again.
