Using her adopted region as inspiration, Karen Covey captures seaside living in New England at its freshest and most innovative. With over 120 recipes that update and modernize traditional New England fare, The Coastal Table is filled with dishes for casual beach days, sophisticated outdoor entertaining, and simple, everyday meals that celebrate the epicurean heritage of this breathtaking coastal region. Including contributions by New England’s finest chefs from Newport to Ogunquit, this is a book written for the home cook who yearns for the New England seaside—and its flavors—all year round.

Karen Covey is a personal chef, food writer, and recipe developer. She is the creator of the site Gourmet Recipes for One and her articles and recipes have been featured in the Boston Globe Magazine, edible South Shore, Whole Foods Market magazine, and the on the website Local in Season. Her most recent project is The Coastal Table Magazine, an indie style national magazine inspired by this cookbook. 

New Englanders have long known that the South Coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island is one of America’s best hidden gems for food lovers. Now Karen Covey is sharing our secret with the rest of the world … and her recipes reflect the sensibility of the place: vibrant but unfussy, grounded in the land and its bounty, elegantly simple. I’ll be cooking from this book through every season.
