Chesapeake Bay Cooking with John Shields is not only a fantastic cookbook, it was a public television series as well! John traveled around the Chesapeake Bay, collected family recipes and met colorful people, and invited them to cook on his show. The result: Chesapeake Bay Cooking with John Shields. Traveling by car, boat, and golf carts, the crew of CBC shot everything on location around the Bay. They set up camp in people's homes, restaurant kitchens and dining rooms, and even private backyards. Why spend so much time and expense? John says it best: "If you want to know the food of the Chesapeake Bay region, you have to meet the people and see how they live."
