By Lee Gant Thorn: This recipe book and almanac was written to give the reader an insight into the birth several centuries ago of what is now the village of Tuckerton and how it grew. It will introduce you to the forefathers, the history making events, and the struggles that shaped the town. It will tell you of today’s goings-on and the plans for the future. On the most part the gentle mood of nostalgia in this book is true. At times it is presented as witnessed, remembered and related by one John Ortley Tucker, who is a totally fictional character. However, as Mr. Tucker rambles on, the actual tales of Tuckerton and its people are revealed and relived.
