A Craving for Crab Cookbook, seafood, shellfish

A Craving for Crab
Author: Christine Quinn
Illustrated by Jennifer Bellinger
This is a cookbook that my sister-in-law and I collaborated on in 2005. It began as a little booklet of recipes to be sold with a hand-crafted Crab Cracker. The Crab Crackers are available here and are created out of beautiful hardwoods by a master boat builder from Port Townsend, Wa.
The booklet quicky grew into a full fleged primer cookbook of all things crab! My grandmother's coleslaw is included, the best! Christine has since formed her own cooking school. Check out Bainbridge Island Cooking School to see what she is currently up to. You may purchase a cookbook through my eBay Store which describes how all inclusive this crab cookbook is. Recipes for crabs from the East coast and West coast are thoroughly represented. Yum! Yum! She even explains how to throw a crab feast and how and where to catch your own crabs!
Thanks for visiting today!

Thanks, Kelly. My sister-in-law is an incredible cook. This is the most comprehensive book ever published on crab! The crab cracker I mention was first designed by my grandfather and the coleslaw recipe was my grandmother's. Nice way to keep a family heritage going!
