Emerald Coast Cookbook-The Perfect Holiday Gift!

If you're like us, you're probably down to searching for those last few gifts for the "hard to buy for people" on your list. For the foodie in your life who loves visiting the beaches of South Walton and Destin, Fla., consider giving them a culinary vacation. With an abundance of award-winning restaurants, cooking classes and fresh gulf seafood, a culinary beach vacation may make a the perfect one-of-kind gift.

If you like this idea, but it sounds hard to wrap, consider giving the gift of coastal cuisine through the Beach Appetit cookbook, highlighting recipes by the most notable chefs and restaurants along the Emerald Coast. This is the second cookbook published by the Junior League of the Emerald Coast, and it features more than 200 recipes. Iconic Emerald Coast restaurants, including Seagar's, Dewey Destin's Seafood Restaurant, Rutherford's 465 and the Red Bar are among many others who have contributed coveted recipes to create this professionally produced cookbook.

One of the best regional cookbooks available, Beach Appetit is a gift that keeps on giving with all proceeds benefiting the Jr. League of the Emerald Coast. Click here to learn more or purchase your copy.

Of course, there is no substitute for the enjoying these dishes by the talented, master-trained chefs who developed them so select a Newman-Dailey premier Destin Vacation Rental and give the gift of a culinary journey along the Emerald Coast. If you're a returning guest, mention our "Many Happy Returns," promotion to enjoy a 15% discount on your home or beach condo rental and a chance to win a free vacation.

Eat, Drink & Be Merry!
