Features 47 lighthouses, dozens of stories, and more than 300 recipes from eight coastal regions of the United States

You are invited on a culinary journey across America to visit some of our country's most beautiful and historic lighthouses. Lighthouse keepers and their families perfected the art of local dining by learning to gather food from their immediate areas.

The American Lighthouse Cookbook celebrates the local cuisines that have long been the staple of lighthouse keepers. Arranged geographically in eight regions of America, the lighthouses were chosen for their interesting backgrounds and stories. Following the story of each lighthouse is a menu for a modern-day lighthouse meal. Included are recipes mostly developed by Chef Ed Jackson, and others contributed by lighthouse societies, inns, and individuals. Each of the approximately 300 recipes captures the essence of the local foods available to lighthouse keepers from the 1700s through today.

Contains fascinating histories and delicious, seasonal recipes for:

  • Honeymoon Breakfast at the Fort Niagara Lighthouse in Youngstown, New York
  • Asian Pacific Dinner at the Lahaina Lighthouse in Maui, Hawaii
  • Cowboy Dinner at the Point Isabel Lighthouse in Port Isabel, Texas
  • Danish Breakfast at the Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn in Ahmeek, Michigan
    ...and much more!
