Skip the mad dash for the last ferry and bring the flavors of Nantucket into your own kitchen, wherever it may be, with an assist from chef Erin Zircher at CRU. In her 2019 tome, CRU Oyster Bar Nantucket Cookbook: Savoring Four Seasons of the Good Life, she walks readers and would-be cookers through seventy five dishes and drinks that capture life on this faraway isle all year round.

There’s a fair amount of seafood – fried oysters, lobster bisque, harissa-grilled tuna and this here recipe for Blue Crab Cocktail with horseradish crème fraîche and cocktail sauce – but there’s plenty for landlubbers too including spiced fried chicken, potato salad, whoopie pies with sea salt buttercream and cocktails, too. There are lots of pictures to pore over and sidebars full of insider info so you can enjoy island life from afar.
