The Cookbook The Authors

Praise for the book

“You have done a wonderful bit of research and it should be known.”
— Julia Child

“Tantalizing tidbits for the mind and mouth. This compilation of recipes is an enjoyable blend of culinary creations and scientific research, which traces the voyage of the scallop from spat to table.”                                                                                              
— Linda Despres, fishery biologist

“A thoroughly researched resource on all aspects of this delectable mollusk, the book includes shellfish lore and information about keeping scallop harvesting sustainable.”
Cape Cod Magazine

“Offers recipes for starters and entrees that will make your mouth water.”
Key West Citizen

“No ordinary kitchen guide.”                                                              
Cape Cod Times

“Handsome color photography.”                                            
New Bedford Standard-Times

“The many voices of expert contributors in every scallop-related field makes for an interesting story, but the dozens of great recipes make for the most wonderful eating of one of our tastiest local seafood products.”

“Melds some killer local scallop recipes with interviews from Nantucket scientists, world-renowned chefs, shuckers, and sea scallopers. A unique inside scoop.”

“A labor of love by mother-daughter team Elaine and Karin Tammi.”

“If you love scallops but you’re used to eating them only in chowder or pan-seared, let mother-daughter team Elaine Tammi and Karin A. Tammi rock your world with their new book.”
— Portland Press Herald

“Scallops, A New England Coastal Cookbook  by mother and daughter Elaine Tammi and Karin A. Tammi is all about those tantalizing tidbits from the sea—how to buy, prepare and cook them, as well as their scientific particulars. I appreciate that the recipes don’t assume that I’m a seafood-cooking expert. They are clear and instructive, aka idiot proof.”                                                            
— Dan’s Hamptons

“To die for, 5.0 out of 5 stars - I think even if you'd never tried scallops in your entire life this book would make you crave them for weeks after merely flipping through the pages.”
— Chandler #1 Amazon Reviewer

"Scallops: A New England Coastal Cookbook by Elaine and Karin Tammi is one of my new discoveries this morning. Kind of like Kurlansky’s Cod, it’s part history, part science, part cookbook. There are gorgeous photos and practical tips for cooks."
