‘On the Coast: Mississippi Tales and Recipes”

“On the Coast: Mississippi Tales and Recipes,” by Mississippi Gulf Coast native Troy Gilbert and Ocean Springs chef Matthew Mayfield, brings the distinctive cuisine, history and beauty of this special region into your kitchen.

Or living room. Featuring paintings by Gautier native Billy Solitario, along with color photographs and essays on unique aspects of coastal living, this cookbook should be elevated to coffee table status.

Local chefs and others contributed more than 100 recipes for the book including old-school favorites (Winnie’s Butterbeans and Shrimp), restaurant specialties (Primo’s Eggplant Eloise), boat snacks (Back Bay Boiled Peanuts), as well entrees using seafood (Scranton’s Red Snapper) or meat (Pecan-Smoked Creole Brisket). The use of Mississippi-made cheese, rice, grits and other products reinforces the book’s local focus.

Aspiring chefs will find plenty of inspiration in “On the Coast,” yet most of the recipes are simple and easy, much like coastal living itself.

The 224-page hardcover book is available in stores and may be ordered from the publisher at Price is $24.95. Recipes reprinted with permission from Pelican Publishing Co.
