On The Coast Troy Gilbert book signing Bay Books Second Saturday Bay St Louis

Troy Gilbert will be signing his book, On the Coast: Mississippi Tales and Recipes, on Saturday, November, 12th from 5:00-7:00.

The Mississippi Gulf Coast has long been a place where people and water are intertwined: the residents live, breathe, and eat the bounty of the Gulf. This collection of recipes from local chefs and essays showing the intimate relationship between people, industry, and environment provides a compelling portrait of one of the Gulf Coast’s most dynamic regions. Snacks such as Atomic Pelican Beaks, starters including Biloxi Doughnuts, seafood entrees like Shrimp-Stuffed Mirlitons, and more bring the Coast into your kitchen, wherever that may be. Local resources, including marinas, are listed. Accompanied by stunning images and intimate stories, On the Coast: Mississippi Tales and Recipes will transport you to a land that breathes with the rhythm of the Gulf.

A native of New Orleans, Troy Gilbert grew up visiting and sailing the Mississippi Gulf Coast and exploring the Gulf of Mexico. On the Coast is Troy's fourth cookbook and follows Dinner with Tennessee Williams. His earlier two books are New Orleans Kitchens and the Cafe Degas Cookbook.
