Nantucket Island Is A Delicious Place For A Gourmand
Many people who visit Nantucket have plans to spend time at the beach. There is no doubt that they want to swim, cycle, and maybe even fish.
Nantucket is an ideal spot for engaging in these sorts of pastimes. However, there is also a lesser- known hobby to immerse yourself in when you’re on Nantucket: cooking. On Nantucket, you can expect to eat like a king.

Go to Bartlett’s Farm to buy some fresh veggies, organic products, coffee, desserts, and other prepared foods. The options they provide for creating gourmet meals are outstanding.
Bartlett’s proximity to the water must have something to do with how wonderful their produce is.
All of Nantucket’s fish store sell top-of-the-line fish. Some options include East Coast Seafood, Glidden’s Island Seafood, or Sayle’s Seafood. The choices for fish are varied, but I might recommend trying the swordfish or halibut.
You will not be disappointed by the swordfish or halibut. So many sauces will work with these two types of fish. Salt, pepper, and butter are an easy and tasty way to accent these types of fish.
Try preparing the fish over a charcoal grill to kick the flavor up a notch. You’ll be just as impressed if you use a gas grill. Pan frying or baking are two other good options.
Bartlett’s Ocean View Farm is a great spot of picking up tomatoes for tomato salad and corn. Late July and right through to the end of August are when these items hit their stride.
There are a variety of tomatoes to choose for a tomato salad. Heirloom, beefsteak, cherry, or grape tomatoes are all delicious. Creating a colorful plate is a rule if thumb when preparing a meal. With that thought in mind, I often choose a few different shades of tomatoes.
You’ll also want to grab some fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Parmesan cheese works well too.
The corn is simple. All you need is a big pot of boiling water and some butter and salt. Did you know that salt and butter are two key ingredients that make everything taste great? Just ask any chef.
