Jimmy Buffet's iconic song "Margaritaville" is associated with numerous commercial ventures, including resorts, retail stores, and a restaurant chain. Sernaglia, concept chef for Margaritaville Holdings, LLC, teams with best-selling author Turshen (Feed the Resistance) for this tie-in cookbook, which takes inspiration from laid-back locales like Key West, the Gulf Coast, New Orleans, and the Caribbean. All the foods you'd expect to find on an island paradise are here, from lime and coconut-infused beverages and breakfasts to casual and sophisticated seafood dishes. In addition to easy recipes (e.g., spicy breakfast quesadillas, quinoa and mango salad with seared tuna, summer grill surf and turf, banana cream pie with caramel rum sauce), the book includes menu suggestions for parties, beach outings, tailgates, and other occasions.
VERDICT Recommended for readers seeking foods that bring to mind vacations and island living.
