Notes about this book

  • nomadchowwoman on July 17, 2010

    Always have loved this cookbook, which is full of very good recipes, perfect for casual entertaining. My favorites are the ones for a mustardy chicken salad w/apricots and the white bean and goat cheese (but do cut the amount of goat cheese!) salad.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • June Taylor chicken legs

    • cwcooks on January 08, 2010

      great for a party - if not cut recipe in half (down to 10-12 drumsticks) sub veg oil for olive and use 1/2 as much rice wine vinegar instead of total white wine if you want.

  • Green beans in dill walnut sauce

    • Lee on August 28, 2012

      This is delicious and easy to make. As good cold as warm.

    • ntt2 on February 17, 2012

      This is an excellent make-ahead salad for a large group. It has excellent flavor!

  • Green beans with warm mustard vinaigrette

    • Lee on May 26, 2017

      This calls for olive oil. Walnut or hazelnut oils are good too.

  • Scallop puffs que sera

    • notalice on July 12, 2011

      a hit every time I've made this - easy to make the scallop mixture ahead of time, then assemble and pop in the oven at the last minute.

      This is a wonderful and most delicious recipe and makes quite a few servings. I use Gruyere cheese and have made it with shrimp for a guest who was allergic to scallops. I also use a thin baguette, which I slice thinly and toast. One of the best appetizers I have ever made and so full of flavor!

  • White bean and goat cheese salad

    • ntt2 on February 17, 2012

      This makes a terrific make-ahead salad for a crowd and has great flavor!

  • Asparagus with sesame mayonnaise

    • ntt2 on February 17, 2012

      Excellent make ahead salad with terrific flavors!

  • Tri-berry muffins

    • Rachaelsb on January 02, 2014

      These are wonderful!!! Light, moist and so fruity.

Publishers Text

Sarah Leah Chase, co-author of The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook, knows that summer means long, lazy days of fun and getting together, of throwing the doors open and inviting over everyone you know for the pleasures of good company and good food. Now, cooks everywhere can create more than 250 of the recipes that have drawn hungry visitors and residents to her popular gourmet shop, Que Sera Sarah on Nantucket Island.

The author's eclectic combinations center on the freshest of seafood and produce, and induce hearty summer appetites to indulge in a unique chilled clam chowder, a fresh beachfront salad of Scallops with Orange and Chervil Vinaigrette, savory empanadas and turnovers, or a beautifully grilled bluefish redolent with lavender. Sumptuous meals must end with the proper desserts: an extravagantly rich Chocolate Bombe or a fruit tart glistening with a fortune of fresh raspberries and blueberries.

Complete with just-baked muffins and breads for breakfasts best enjoyed in a huge wicker chair and cool summer drinks for whiling away long afternoons, Nantucket Open-House Cookbook is for anyone who wants to make the most of fair-weather dining all year round.
