I recently received an email from the New York publisher of an upcoming cookbook featuring American recipes and accompanying backstories from all 50 states. The writer is a well known cookbook author and longtime food columnist for a major publication, and it seems as though she isn’t happy with the conch recipe they have from South Florida. So I was asked if I knew anyone with a great conch fritter recipe from their family, preferably somebody with roots in either South Florida or the islands where conch is prevalent, and who would be willing to share information about it -- whose recipe it is, how it came about, etc. There is no money involved, but rather the chance to get your family history/recipe in a very prestigious book.
If you fit the bill, or know of someone who does, please contact me either on this page or, if you prefer privacy, by clicking my name below.
