Seafood Shopping Survey

Though I'd been deep in a couple specific seafood themes with my two previous books--Oysters and Crab--not to mention covering seafood in a number of other books and article projects over the years, something about writing Shellfish was different. It re-energized my seafood focus that began ages ago at Simply [...]

Quick Tricks: Shrimp Stock

Though it wasn't exactly part of the agenda, I shared a little tip with folks at a cooking class I taught a couple of days ago. On the menu was Herb-Marinated Shrimp from Gourmet Game Night, a simple and flavorful recipe I'll share with you here just for fun. [...]

Grilling Oysters

[CN note: I've made a couple updates since the original post was written to reflect small changes to grilling options at a couple destinations mentioned below.] There are so, so many delicious things to toss on the grill this time of year. Burgers, salmon, corn, steak, ribs, hot dogs, pizza, [...]

Farms and Mines and Salmon

It's been a big week for salmon, at least here in the Seattle area, with two sizeable stories in play. One new, one older but with a new timeliness. The new news was the terrible failure of farmed salmon pens near the San Juan Islands. I'll admit to not having [...]

Salmon and that White Goo

No-Shuck Oyster Shells

It's no surprise that I've been talking A LOT about oysters in the past few months, since the release of Oysters: Recipe that Bring Home a Taste of the Sea. And no, I haven't gotten tired of the topic, I'm not sick of them yet! In the course of interviews [...]

Coming Soon: Oysters!

It's a funny sensation, that moment in an author's life (at least this author's life) when you realize the book manuscript you've been working on for months is now finished and leaving your grasp for good: off to the printer in whatever form that last round of edits produced. The [...]
