Trips to the beach or anywhere are on hold, but that doesn’t mean we can’t explore recipes that can transport us to beautiful places around the world. Beach House Dinners: Simple, Summer-Inspired Meals for Entertaining Year-Round by chef Lei Shishak does just this.
In Beach House Dinners, Lei shares over 80 recipes, some of which you may already know and others may be new. Either way, her hope is that while making each recipe you’ll become blissfully unaware of the distractions of everyday life, and in the end, you and your family will melt into the joy of eating a great meal.
Recipes include some of chef Lei’s favorites like Summer Tomato Soup with Three Cheese Panini, Coconut Shrimp, Roasted Whole Sea Bass, Lemon Garlic Chicken, Hearts of Palm Salad, St. Louis Jerk Ribs, Salmon Burger, Pot Roast Tagine and Lobster Roll.
