Does anyone have a copy of The Summer House Cookbook, by Ponzek and Delaney-Graham? I need the crab dip recipe.

I have this book, but have recently moved and it is buried in one of 37 boxes of books currently stacked in the basement. I'm hoping someone in the Food52 world would be able to share the recipe for the crab dip (it's served cold, not hot like so many crab dips.) Help! I need it soon.

I hope this isn't too late!

I don't have that book (but love her earlier French one) - but the website for her shop, Aux Delices has a recipe for her warm crab and artichoke dip, if that's the one you're looking for:

Oops! Just noticed you specified a cold dip...oh well, never mind!
