In this region, old in history yet young in heart, Spanish, Greek, Italian, Southern, Yankee and Seafood recipes typify the happy melding of a varied population.

Nothing could be more fitting for this part of the world than such a pirate festival, for the region is, in truth, a treasure chest of good foods, and this book is a map to guide the treasure seeker.
