Creative Loafing Tampa "The Books Issue 2016: Six reads that'll lift the taste buds of the lit-lover in your life"
“Anna Marlis Burgard is a sea-and-sand kinda gal, and her cookbook, Shrimp Country: Recipes and Tales from the Southern Coast, is a super-dreamy read. In between recipes, the book’s packed with entertaining features on marine biologists, trawler captains and topics like American rice and the annual ritual of Mobile Bay, Alabama’s jubilee events in between shrimp-centric recipes, transporting readers to the strange and beautiful shrimping communities of coastal America. Burgard, who traveled 3,300 miles in September 2014 to gather food formulas and images for Shrimp Country (a photo of Tarpon Springs’ Rusty Bellies among them), begins by providing shrimp preparation basics and ends with sides to accompany the work’s mix of classic and unconventional starters, sandwiches and mains, many of which come from southern coastal restaurant and food truck chefs.”
