Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Woe betide the innocent cook who buys this book in the belief that Keys cuisine can be easily transplanted. The author's recipes depend on regional ingredients for their character, and unless your local purveyors stock conch, yellowfin snappers and yellowfin tuna, alligator steaks and the celebrated Key lime, you can relinquish all hope of reproducing the tropical temptations included here. A moderate amount of kitchen savvy is also a prerequisite: although Gassenheimer owned and ran a cooking school in England, she doesn't make concessions to the beginner who may wonder, say, how much oil is needed to fry fritters or how finely a given ingredient should be chopped. More feasible are Keys drinks, such as one prepared with white rum, pineapple juice, passion fruit liqueur and juice; garnish this with fruit and a condom and call it, as a Key West restaurateur does, Safe Sex in the Afternoon. Illustrations not seen by PW.

This is an awesome cookbook! If you are interested in adding fish to your diet in unique ways, this cookbook is a must-have! There are also tons of other recipes, including a whole chapter devoted to key limes, and the recipes are well written and easy to follow. I have eaten at Marker 88,home of one of the featured chefs in the book, and the recipe for Andre's Snapper Rangoon is to die for! I find the recipes very innovative and delicious!

A Kid's Review on January 28, 2004
Format: Paperback
I used the recipe for " Manny's Key Lime Pie" p.189 All seemed to be going well - the key lime mixture tasted great. Problem was that the directions said to "beat the egg yolks and condensed milk until creamy". It did not say to cook it. I thought this was problematic. All those eggs yolks should have been cooked, not just beaten. I followed the book instructions and only cooked it when I had made the meringue and placed it on top. I cooked it for the required 5 minutes but it was still very liquidy. I have it in the freezer right now and am hoping that it works. Did you miss in the recipe ? Should it have been cooked instead of beaten ???

I found this to be the ultimate way to "eat" my way up and down the Florida Keys. Then to be able to take the flavors with me and prepare them at home is a real treat.

I almost got this on my trip to Key West. Great recipes. I got it much cheaper from amazon and did not have to cart it home in my luggage
