Becky Smith, one of Sun Realty’s Senior Associate Brokers, hosted a book signing today at the Roanoke Island Festival Park Museum Store. Her book is "Outer Banks Cuisine — A Sampling of Our Restaurants with Recipes", a110 page cookbook featuring over 74 Outer Banks restaurants and their chefs’ favorite recipes. The signing was a great success; customers were especially delighted to taste dishes directly out of the cookbook. Some were even seen sneaking back in line for a second helping!
"I didn't know these things come in shells!" When vacationers visit the OBX, they head to Outer Banks restaurants and buffets in droves. Most local restaurants pride themselves in serving only the best quality seafood. After all, truly fresh seafood tastes so much better than the frozen stuff! Why bother eating out if you're just going to be served the same frozen fish and shrimp that you could get inland?Some folks shy away from fixing seafood dishes at home because they don't know how to buy fresh seafood.
Now this is some good stuff!
