Debbie Moose, Carolina Catch Sunday, June 24, 3pm Early in life, North Carolinian Debbie Moose encountered fish primarily in stick form, but once she experienced her first raw oyster and first fried soft-shell crab, their pure flavors switched her on to shellfish and fish forever. Moose has now written the cookbook that unlocks for everyone the fresh tastes of North Carolina grilled tuna, steamed shrimp, pan-seared mountain trout, fried catfish, and baked littleneck clams, to name just a few of the culinary treasures sourced from the waters of a state that stretches from the mountains to the sea. In ninety-six dishes, Moose shows how to prepare North Carolina fish and shellfish—freshwater, saltwater, wild-caught, and farmed—in both classic southern and inventive, contemporary ways. The book’s Best Basics section provides a much needed one-stop resource for confident selection, preparation, and storage, and the Think Seasonal section offers a comprehensive list with descriptions and peak availability of North Carolina fish and shellfish. Recipes include suggestions for appropriate alternate fish or shellfish—the idea is to try new varieties in season and support local fisheries. And, as Moose explains, dock-to-door services and local seafood organizations are making sourcing easier for home cooks. Cookbook author, editor, freelance writer and award-winning essayist Debbie Moose takes an omnivorous approach to life - try at least one bite of everything. She started out with a journalism degree and a love of newsrooms, but discovered that food writing could touch on all aspects of life and offer the greatest opportunity to bring people together. The only thing people like as much as eating food is talking about it – no doubt about that. Debbie was born and raised in North Carolina. Throughout her writing career, she has enjoyed discovering the state’s wonderful food, great cooks and traditions. She brings her knowledge of and passion for the Tar Heel State to others, with a large dollop of humor.
