Today in The Sun: The second installment of my three-part crab series. This one's about old school crab recipes.
I talked to a bunch of restaurant people, but the real meat of the article came from local cookbooks, like the 50th anniversary cookbook put out by Cooper's mom's garden club, Of Tide and Thyme (the Junior League of Annapolis cookbook that I love) and an amazing collection of recipes called The Crab Cookbook, written by a guy named Whitey Schmidt.
I spent a bunch of time on the phone with the people behind all three of those books - everyone loves talking about cooking crab.
And why shouldn't they?
