Cooking in the Crab Capital with Rebecca Bent
A Baltimore native with ties to the Shore
Many of our recipes were created by Rebecca Gareis Bent. Rebecca was born in Baltimore, Maryland and grew up spending weekends on the Chesapeake learning to crab and fish.
"I believe there is something very special about the Eastern Shore and its way of life. I want my kids to grow up appreciating the shore and its bounty. You can learn a lot about a person by the way they eat Maryland hard crabs! I want to stay in touch with my roots and share the stories with the world."
Rebecca and her products have been seen in "O" Oprah Magazine, Coastal Living, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The Baltimore Sun and Better Housekeeping, to name a few. Rebecca is the author of several cookbooks and pens the weekly column "Cooking At Home" for several newspapers. She has appeared on the Today Show, ESPN, and over 20 other live television and radio segments across the United States. Her photography has been featured in numerous best-selling cookbooks, including her own, and national and international magazines and newspapers. Her favorite things to photograph are Maryland blue crabs and shore scenes.
Rebecca works on product development, photography and marketing for The Crab Place.
