The beloved Loaves & Fishes cookshop on Long Island’s East End pays tribute to local farms and seasonal produce in these books from a 12-volume set of smart, stylish, handsomely photographed clothbound series.
Loaves & Fishes proprietor Sybille van Kempen—who opened the original store alongside her mother, the legendary Anna Pump—worked with local chef Licia Kassim Householder to showcase wonderful things from the ocean: clams, oysters, scallops, lobster, striped bass, flounder, halibut, tuna, and swordfish. You can enjoy baked oysters with melted leeks; sea bass with ratatouille; coconut-crusted flounder with chili-lime tartar sauce; and even a few fresh vegetable sides to serve along with them.
Handsomely packaged, almost like little gift books (just under 8 inches square and 72 pages long), the Loaves & Fishes Farm Series volumes are strongly evocative of both time and place and likely to become well used in seasonal kitchens and year-round.
Hardcover. Color photographs throughout.
