"I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that Lure is the most important cookbook of the year, if not the decade." "Lure is impeccably researched and beautiful. Long live the Dungeness crab!" --Renee Erickson, chef and co-owner of Sea Creatures Restaurants and author of A Boat, a Whale & a Walrus "Ned's passion for sustainable seafood is infectious, and this book is irresistible. Bringing Ned's recipes into your home is a great way to support healthy oceans." --Dr. David Suzuki, award-winning scientist, environmentalist, and broadcaster "Ned Bell is one of that laudable cadre of young chefs who has taken the trouble to learn not only the names of his farmers but also his fishers. If, like me, you're committed to sustaining the health of the oceans, you'll grab this book that shows you how to cook all the responsibly harvested gifts of the sea." --Tom Douglas, American executive chef, restaurateur, author, and radio talk show host "These pages offer a welcome glimpse into the creative mind of a chef whose spirited dishes sing of the seasons and praise the products that make the Pacific Northwest the perfect home for one whose heart belongs to the sea." --Barton Seaver, chef and author of For Cod and Country
