Maine food is about putting on a bib and getting messy with
lobster in the summer. In the winter, it's about tossing brisket
and potatoes in a pot on the back of the woodstove. Maine
brings the carefree spirit of those who work the land
and sea to life.
More than 150 simple, straightforward dishes are organized by
the shore, the sea, the forest, the farm, the garden, the dairy,
and the bakery. Celebrate Maine's bounty with recipes such as Ham
with Fried Apples, Corn Fritters with Maple Syrup, Classic Lobster
Rolls, and Pickled Fiddlehead Ferns. Stories of farmers,
lobstermen, cheesemakers, and old-school bakers "infuse our cooking
and inspire us to explore our own culinary legacies," say
award-winning authors Mark and Clark. Chock-full of full-color
photographs, this cookbook is definitely a Maine classic.
