    Calling Cape cooks

    What better place to look for regional dishes than your own back yard? “A Little Taste of Cape Cod: Recipes for Classic Dishes” by chef turned food writer and New England native Annie B. Copps features 30-plus Cape-inspired recipes. Selections include obvious faves, such as lobster rolls, broiled cod, and clam chowder, along with recipes derived from the area’s Portuguese population, cocktails, and desserts. Although not a local, illustrator Courtney Jentzen captures the essence of New England with her primary-colored paintings of lobsters, lighthouses, and the like. If you’re Cape and island-hopping this summer, buy a stack — the book makes a perfect housewarming gift. “A Little Taste of Cape Cod: Recipes for Classic Dishes,” $12.95 at Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard St., Brookline, 617-566-6660, brooklinebooksmith.com
