Being a Marylander, we eat Maryland Crab Soup all the time, but I came across the addition of sausage in my newest cookbook: Maryland’s Chesapeake: How the Bay and its Bounty Shaped a Cuisine. I am a lover and collector of cookbooks, firmly believing that a good home chef goes far beyond being able to follow a recipe.

It is being educated about your food. Knowing its history, where it comes from and the chemistry behind its kitchen preparation. My new favorite cookbook also happens to be authored by two of my local foodie friends, Kathy Wielech Patterson and Neal Patterson.

Maryland’s Chesapeake: How the Bay and its Bounty Shaped a Cuisine is one of the rare cookbooks that not only provides regionally authentic recipes from local chefs, but also background.

Have you ever wondered why the Maryland blue crab is blue? Or how to make an authentic crab cake (I’ll tell you now, most are not). What is the difference between a hard shell crab and soft shell crab?

Talk about great dinner conversation with the family. Beautiful photos and a wealth of information, this is now my bedtime reading book!

On this evening I needed something easy and Spicy Crab and Sausage Soup was right up that alley. Two types of onions, spicy chorizo, loads of vegetables, buttery crab and a tomato base, this soup is the bee’s knees!

I used a chicken sausage and also omitted lima beans or edamame, but only because I forgot them at the store. I just added extra of the other veggies.

Also make sure to check out more recipes like the famed Smith Island Cake, Maryland Beaten Biscuits and Chicken Chesapeake, all found in Maryland’s Chesapeake: How the Bay and its Bounty Shaped a Cuisine. Makes a great holiday gift!
