Bob Chinn's Crab House Cookbook  
"Oftentime my staff thinks I'm fanatical about the quality of our food and our service. Maybe I am, but if so it's because I'm committed to my personal vision about the dining experience we give our guests."...Bob Chinn

For over a million diners every year, Bob Chinn's Crab House delivers the ultimate seafood experience. Located just outside of Chicago, Chinn's is committed to the freshest fish and shellfish possible-going so far as to display bills of lading on the walls near the restaurant entrance. Every day, salmon from the Copper River in Alaska, stone crabs from Florida and halibut from Kona arrive to be cooked with care in the hearty style that that has kept customers coming back for more.

Bob Chinn and his staff really love seafood, and that knowledge shines through in this generous helping of the recipes, technique's and expertise. Recipes include signature dishes like Garlic Crab and Marilyn's Crab Crispies, classics like New England Clam Chowder and Cajun Shrimp, as well as innovative dishes like King Crab Ravioli, Sashimi Salad, and Chile Yabbies. A selection of mouthwatering desserts including Key Lime Pie and Pear Cheesecake complete the collection.

Highlighted by full-color pictures throughout and simple instructions for home-cooking, Bob Chinn's Crab House Cookbook is a must-have for seafood lovers everywhere.
