The Crab House Book

The Crab House Cafe Book

“We’re devotees of the early 21st century shack school of architecture” says Nigel Bloxham of his nationally-famous seaside restaurant. But then you don’t visit the Crab House Café in search of grandeur. Just a stone’s throw from Dorset’s Chesil Beach, it has earned a world-class reputation for its delicious seafood.

Nigel’s menus are built on the freshest fish and shellfish harvested from the surrounding coast – including the Crab House’s own oyster beds, just yards from the dining tables.

Nigel draws on a lifetime of experience in sourcing, preparing and cooking good seafood in this, his long-awaited first book. Featuring classic Crab House Café recipes – simple, rustic and easy to cook and enjoy at home – alongside handy tips and facts, it’s a must for all who love the natural bounty of the sea. Dive in and enjoy.
