Cape May is America’s first seaside resort, and with that comes a mouthwatering food history. The New York Times even proclaimed the city “Restaurant Capital of New Jersey.”
The first settlers, the Kechemeche of the Lenape tribe, feasted on the fish and wild game in the area. The whaling industry briefly brought attention to the island, but Ellis Hughes’s 1801 advertisement offering seashore entertainment with “fish, oysters, crabs, and good liquors” gave birth to a beachside haven.
Join author, John Howard-Fusco, in celebration of his new book, A Culinary History of Cape May: Salt Oysters, Beach Plums, & Cabernet Franc. In addition to offering copies of the book, the author will be demonstrating how to create some of these delicious Cape May dishes.
Location: Stone Harbor Library Program Room
John Howard-Fusco started eating at an early age and has not stopped since. From his first meal at the Mad Batter on Jackson Street many years ago, John has always had a soft spot for Cape May. In 2008, he and his wife, Lisa, started the food-centric website Eating in South Jersey. Their site developed a following and received mentions from the New York Times, New Jersey Monthly magazine and nj.com.Presenter: John Howard-Fusco
