Susan Schadt’s Reel Masters is a collection of 42 carefully curated recipes, which are gratifyingly inviting, inventive, and appealing to the lovers of great food and a fresh catch from Southern waters. Part cookbook and part guidebook, award winning chefs take us fishing along the coastlines and inland shores of the sporting South, including Birmingham, AL, Charleston, SC, Richmond, VA, Pensacola, FL, and Delacroix, Venice, Port Sulphur, and Toledo Bend LA. Through narrative and stunning photography they showcase some of the country’s most sought-after fishing spots and unknown gems.
This is Susan Schadt’s fourth book chronicling and celebrating the bounty and spirit of American sporting life and culinary culture.
