Meet Annie Copps, a frequent visitor to Cotuit and Osterville where her family summers every year. While Annie travels the world as an Instructor and Culinary Tour Leader for Oceania Cruise Lines (each year awarded “Best Food at Sea”), her heart belongs to Cape Cod. And Annie has just published a delightful cookbook, “A Little Taste of Cape Cod: Recipes for Classic Dishes.” by Annie B. Copps, Bluestreak Books, Weldon Owen, 2018 (available on Amazon.com).
The book is filled with recipes of food and drink that visitors will find when they visit – and then they can make the dishes at home while they remember their fabulous days on beautiful Cape Cod. Annie shares one of the recipes from her cookbook, the famous “Cape Codder” cocktail. Her lovely little book also includes recipes for libations like “Summer Wind”, a “Blueberry Mojito”, and a “Bloody Mary With a Coastal Twist”.
