    I am so glad that a book of this nature has been created! I came across this book at a few local food-related businesses, but settled on buying it at a Barnes & Noble. This book was written by Deborah Smith, the chief blogger from Jersey Bites, and features not just recipes from restaurants that can be found on the Jersey Shore, but a bit of background information about the New Jersey restaurants themselves and how they came to be. While you are not going to get signature recipes from these rest I am so glad that a book of this nature has been created! I came across this book at a few local food-related businesses, but settled on buying it at a Barnes & Noble. This book was written by Deborah Smith, the chief blogger from Jersey Bites, and features not just recipes from restaurants that can be found on the Jersey Shore, but a bit of background information about the New Jersey restaurants themselves and how they came to be. While you are not going to get signature recipes from these restaurants (for instance, The Chicken or the Egg, known more affectionately as "The Chegg" to regulars, submitted a recipe for their pancakes), you are still going to get some good recipes that you may be able to utilize in some way, shape, or form, and it reflects the restaurant to some extent. I read this book during the span of a year, reading it in between the novels I was reading and the material I was reading for my Booktube channel discussions, but I felt I picked up a lot of information about restaurants on the shore that I have either visited or plan to visit and have some ideas as to the kinds of meals I can make in the future. I am really convinced to make it a goal to visit every restaurant in this book, for there are so many great choices of places to visit from Keyport to Cape May. With five restaurants, there are more restaurants in Cape May than from any other area. Atlantic City and Asbury Park come in second with four. I would really like to see Deborah Smith expand on this series. Not only should there be a follow-up to eateries on the Jersey Shore, but there should be a cookbook and guide to restaurants in the general part of New Jersey (favorably the southern part of the state), diners (because we are The Diner State), bakeries (because we all love our sweets), and pizzerias (because New Jersey and New York City make the best pizza in the United States). In essence, The Jersey Shore Cookbook has set itself up for something special!

    This is a treasure of a cookbook plus a memorable keepsake for anyone who loves the Jersey shore. (Not the show! Please!) Whether you've vacationed there or grew up there, you must see this book. It covers restaurants, bakeries, breakfast places, etc. all along the shore line, big and small. Some that have been established for 100 years to 5 years. Many that had to rebuild or refurbish after hurricane Sandy. Each one with pictures and recipes. Just fantastic.

This is my unbiased opinion of the book . To start with the book is a terrific travel guide and advertisement for all involved but it also tells a story. One of local history and community. With each of the 50 recipes is a clear and easy instruction plus the back ground of the chef(s) and their establishments. All the photographs that were included were well done but I would have like to have seem some of them a little larger however, space restraints and architectural beauty most likely created the need to make a choice between recipe and establishment. Inside the cover is a map of the Jersey shoreline with a key to 29 popular stops. Taking a road trip along the coast with this book tucked under your arm would be a great culinary experience. If you`re not fortunate enough to have the Northeast coast`s largest scallop fishing fleet at the tip of your area, you might find some of the recipes lacking in the excellent flavour that only fresh catch can provide. Regardless of the ingredient , fresh is always best ! From the basics of family dining with eggs, scones and sandwiches there is an excellent group of fine dining recipes that just might make you drool. There`s even a lobster mac and cheese one. I`m certain that I`ve gained a little weight just reading the recipes. A conversion measurement and weight chart is provided in the back of the book. Of course I could list my favourites and what order I`ll be preparing them but culinary enjoyment is such an individual taste, ( go ahead and groan, but it was an appropriate pun) that I`m leaving those opinions and options for you . Our personal relationship with food and our attitude towards it is as unique as our personalities. . Jerry Rotunno, chef and owner of The Committed Pig in Manasquan proves this with his response to how he chose the name for his restaurant. `` the best way to explain the difference between involvement and commitment is explained by the dish bacon and eggs--- the chicken is involved but the bacon is committed.``

    I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway. This is a great cookbook and a great travel book too. Each recipe comes from a well-known restaurant of the Jersey shore, and explains its history. Beautiful pictures illustrates the restaurants and the food. My only down point is that not every recipe is illustrated.

    A treasure trove of favorite dishes featured in some of the more popular shore-town restaurants along the coast of New Jersey. Very fun :)

    My husband is from New Jersey so I got this book so we could try some of the foods that the Shore does. It has some exciting recipes, but some are very specific to where you get the ingredients.

    Great recipes. You need great ingredients to make these fabulous recipes or just go down the shore for a great meal. Now if only someone could figure how to go there without TRAFFIC.

    I received this cookbook as part of the Goodreads Giveaway. Gorgeous pictures and a short write up on the restaurants and bakeries along the Jersey shore. I loved learning a little history on each location and also a bit about the hard-working, passionate owners that make their love of fresh, local ingredients obvious in each recipe. I took my time reviewing this book ... how else can a chef rate a cookbook other than by making the recipes. The Pecan-Crusted Salmon from Atlantic City's Dock's Oys I received this cookbook as part of the Goodreads Giveaway. Gorgeous pictures and a short write up on the restaurants and bakeries along the Jersey shore. I loved learning a little history on each location and also a bit about the hard-working, passionate owners that make their love of fresh, local ingredients obvious in each recipe. I took my time reviewing this book ... how else can a chef rate a cookbook other than by making the recipes. The Pecan-Crusted Salmon from Atlantic City's Dock's Oyster House was delicious, as were the Seared Viking Village Scallops from The Gables in Beach Haven. I can only imagine how over the top the dish would be if I could have actually used fresh from the dock scallops! I loved the Peach Panna Cotta from Porta's in Asbury Park, and never would have thought of paring fresh basil with peaches. I haven't made the Lobster Mac and Cheese yet, but can't stop starring at the photo. Apparently pork roll is quite the thing in New Jersey, I haven't had any success in finding a substitute here in Ontario, but made The Brunchwich Pork Roll using peameal bacon instead, perhaps next time I'll use back bacon. A collection of great recipes paired with inspiring photos to tease you into wanting a Jersey Shore summer vacation!

The recipes all have easy to understand instructions and well laid out descriptions. At the back of the book is the usual contributors list, metric conversions table, and index. But there is also a neat little map with all of the restaurants listed. I loved the color and vibrancy of this book. The writer was able to entice me with her descriptions and the history of each little dining place was fascinating. With the excellent photography, colorful graphics, and variety of places featured, I'm sure that any cook will fall in love with this book. I've tried out a couple of the recipes and they were delicious. Overall, this is a cookbook, that will appeal to a much wider audience. It can be treasured for its history and photography as well. I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.

    As a 30+ years of living in South Jersey resident I'm familiar with many of the restaurants that have shared their recipes. I'm a seafood lover and many of these recipes will find a per place in my kitchen. This book is easy to read, well illustrated and uses easy to obtain ingredients. I think I'll want to invest in a physical copy to have on the shelf. I'm a fan of farm to table and it's nice to see this concept in so many places.

    I won this book through a goodreads giveaway and am very much looking forward to trying the recipes once the Jersey tomatoes and corn are in season. The book is beautiful, with a map of the Jersey shore on inside front and back covers and mouthwatering photos of the food. Each recipe is taken from a Jersey shore restaurant, and a short bio of the chef/ restaurant description is given. This would make a great gift for a seafood lover or host gift if you're visiting the shore this summer!

    This arrived today and I devoured it. :) This is a lovely cookbook. Beautiful cover, well designed, love the paper used and best of all, it gives even a local like me new ideas. I will be trying the restaurants as well as the recipes. The Jersey Shore rocks! ;) I bought two copies of this book because I knew my mom would like it too. Did I mention that I really like this book?

    I won this awesome cookbook in the Goodreads Giveaway and I absolutely love it! Growing up on the shore I am lucky enough to have been to many of these restaurants and now I can make their prized dishes at home! The book has a wide range of dishes, which makes it even better! Thank you Deborah Smith for all of your hard work and creating such an excellent masterpiece!

    Jersey Shore Cookbook is a intriguing collection of recipes from eating establishments along the New Jersey coastline and a travelogue of the establishments providing them. This is a nice take on the cuisine of the region. This was a free review copy through Goodreads.com.

    I think this books is very visually appealing. It showcases chefs and recipes from different Jersey Shore restaurants with lots of pictures, including pics of the boardwalk. Lots of seafood recipes which look really good but I haven't tried any yet. I was given this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.
