CRU Oyster Bar’s casually stylish cuisine is an ode to the ocean, local farms, and all four seasons, served in a beautiful setting on Nantucket Harbor.
Zircher takes her inspiration from her classical French training, her love of Mediterranean flavors, and family recipes in these 75 never-before-published recipes. With four-color images of the food and the island, the CRU Oyster Bar Nantucket Cookbook brings the vibrancy of Nantucket’s spectacular beauty to its pages.
Recipes featured in this cookbook include Fluke Meunière, Harissa Grilled Tuna With Leeks Vinaigrette, and Crispy Fried Oysters With Radish Rémoulade. There’s no shortage of lobster recipes With Lobster Tail, Lobster Bisque, Lobster Salad, and Lobster Cocktail. And dessert as well! Hazelnut Shortbread with Wild Blackberry Jam and Vanilla and Rum Roasted Plums with Orange-Scented Pound Cake. The cocktails are a draw of their own—both delicious and pretty, there are recipes for season-appropriate drinks that anyone can master.
A gorgeous tribute to the island—complete with sidemars with information only locals know—and to the gem that is CRU, the CRU Oyster Bar Nantucket Cookbook allows you to enjoy the flavors, places, and luxury of Nantucket every day of the year.
