Great cookbook that brings me back to my childhood growing up in Fall River, Massachusetts. I’ve often visited the seafood restraunts featured in this book and still do, when I visit. I enjoyed reading about new places and trying out new recipes. I’ve already made clamcakes, which were DELICIOUS!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this book!!!!
