Surrounded by water, the Florida Keys yields a bounty that easily could qualify as the eighth wonder of the world. The Keys can confidently boast that nowhere else in the continental US will you find fresher, more innovatively prepared fish and seafood. Special natural resources, from stone crabs and yellowtail snapper to cracked conch and key limes, are served any way you like and the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurants is reflected in the cuisine. Be it a roadside cafe or a resort dining room, the cuisine is all “Keys casual.”
With recipes for the home cook from Florida's most celebrated eateries and showcasing over 200 full-color photos featuring mouth-watering dishes, famous chefs, and lots of local flavor, Florida Keys & Key West Chef's Table is the ultimate gift and keepsake cookbook for both tourists and residents of the Keys.
