    Couldn t get past first chapter Did not finish Recipes seemed to be an excuse to advertise restaurants Most pictures were of food stands, not the food Recipes were for 8 servings instead of typical family size Skipped to look at recommending reading list again restaurant owners books.

    Good recipes, some of which are not as easy to make if you are outside Maine or at least New England.

    This book was returned in my list of search results when, for a GR Group challenge, I searched for books containing both up and down in their titles at our library Being from Down East Maine myself, this book caught my eye and my imagination I found it difficult to think of any foods in particular that were in any way unique to my experiences in Maine, with the exception perhaps of clam rolls which I make a point to purchase any time I am in my hometown during the summer Anyway, this be This book was returned in my list of search results when, for a GR Group challenge, I searched for books containing both up and down in their titles at our library Being from Down East Maine myself, this book caught my eye and my imagination I found it difficult to think of any foods in particular that were in any way unique to my experiences in Maine, with the exception perhaps of clam rolls which I make a point to purchase any time I am in my hometown during the summer Anyway, this being a cookbook, it didn t qualify for the challenge I ended up picking Just Don t Fall How I Grew Up, Conquered Illness, and Made It Down the Mountain but I still found the book in the library and brought it home to investigate.The book is written by a lady from away Connecticut who claimed she just had to move to Maine for the food The food Most people move to Maine for the scenery, or small town atmosphere, get out of the hustle and bustle of the city Apparently she gets that reaction a lot, so she decided to write this cookbook To be fair, there is food I miss from back home, but most of it revolves around the fact that it s difficult to get fresh seafood here and so in Dallas, Texas where I lived for 8 years and not anything to do with the preparation in particular The first few pages have some beautiful photographs that capture different aspects of Maine quite well Then she follows it up with a few pages of narrative about the different areas of the state, the types of things that are grown in each, the foodways as she calls it so she was off to a good start.But then, I got to the first recipe in the book Jalape o Johnnycakes Topped with Smoked Fish Jalape o Let me see if I can count the number of times I had jalape o in my food during the 20 years I lived in Maine Yup zero ok, maybe once or twice, but certainly it would fit on one hand Interestingly, things like jalape os, curry and chevr goat cheese play a much larger role in this cookbook than I would have expected I do think Mainers are expanding their tastes, and I have had some delicious food withexotic by Maine standards ingredients at restaurants in the larger towns and cities, but I think you ll find as you get to the real , small town Maine folks are pretty conservative about what they put in their mouths.Also, she brings up this johnnycake thing A LOT Apparently in Maine we call cornbread johnnycake , and the author finds this interesting enough to bring up repeatedly I have never heard of this, we just called it cornbread But maybe that s because my mom was originally from New York But I would have thought I d have heard it from my dad s side of the family, who basically has lived in this same small town for almost 200 years Alright, so I ve done a little complaining here, but still gave a 4 star rating Why Well, many of the recipes look delicious, even if some of them are sort of stretching my idea of Maine food In addition, there ARE some great Maine meals in this book she does have a recipe to make my own fried clam rolls at home As well as the classic Maine lobster roll, dandelion greens with bacon and vinegar, fiddleheads, lots and lots of ways to make potatoes, many chowders, venison but no moose , boiled dinners, and lots of stuff with blueberries She talks about the delicious tomalley in the lobster though by the way she writes it, I think it s clear she doesn t eat the stuff herself She even has a whole page devoted to bean hole beans Each recipe has a little story behind it sometimes it s a story of how she learned the recipe, sometimes it s an explanation of the ingredients like fiddleheads and how to choose good ones or what season you are most likely to find them, or good substitutes if you can t Sometimes she ll talk about a restaurant in Maine where you can find a particularly delicious version of this dish She ll talk about the area of the state where this food iscommon, etc It was a very interesting read She also has full pages devoted to some of theunique things, like the bean hole beans or the fact that the rest of the country does their hotdog rolls totally wrong Some of these full pages feature restaurants or farms or fishermen, and there is a list of the featured restaurants and their addresses in the back of the book Finally, the pictures throughout the book are beautiful and really capture the feel of the state though it seems she somehow managed to find this many Maine photos and not a single one with snow in it.So I recommend this book, if only for you to learn a little bit about Maine and its people s food habits And maybe you ll find something delicious to try

    A few years ago, my family spent several weeks in Maine, and I fell in love Early October, the scenes were gorgeous, the people friendly and the food fantastic I could not WAIT to get my hands on this cookbook While there is an abundance of scrumptious recipes, I was so terribly disappointed in the dearth of seafood chowder stew recipes There are a few for a specific ingredient haddock, mussels, lobster, etc , but only one for a mixed seafood stew, and that was Mediterranean Seafood Stew I A few years ago, my family spent several weeks in Maine, and I fell in love Early October, the scenes were gorgeous, the people friendly and the food fantastic I could not WAIT to get my hands on this cookbook While there is an abundance of scrumptious recipes, I was so terribly disappointed in the dearth of seafood chowder stew recipes There are a few for a specific ingredient haddock, mussels, lobster, etc , but only one for a mixed seafood stew, and that was Mediterranean Seafood Stew If I want a Mediterranean dish, I ll go to a Mediterranean cookbook In a Maine cookbook, I want MAINE foods While in Maine we happened by chance upon the Rockland Cafe in Rockland, ME where I had an unbelievably wonderful seafood chowder loaded with haddock, lobster, crab, clams, scallops and shrimp I realize their recipe is a closely guarded secret, but I was hoping for something along that line a good traditional mixed seafood chowder only to be severely disappointed On the bright side, this book is filled with wonderful recipes, great tips, facts and stories as well as truly gorgeous photos Honestly, it s a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, but I did come away with the feeling that it wasa cookbook of what people expect from Maine than a truly Mainah cookbook Don t let that dissuade you from trying these great recipes The Broiled Herb Crumbed Sea Scallops are calling my name right along with the Shaker Chicken Stew with Scallion Dumplings, Pan Roast of Fish and Shellfish, Rustic Summer Berry Croustade You HAVE to see the photo on this one I wanted to dive right in , and Carding Brook Farm Scalloped Tomatoes with Garlic Crumbs Let s get cooking I received a copy of this book from Storey Publishing for my honest review All thoughts and opinions are my own

    Had a tough time deciding a star rating on this oneit s a great book, visually and otherwisebut there were times that the author gave off this foodie snob vibe that got under my skin like how slicing good old gingerbread in wedges is a nicer presentation than squares , AND she has the idea of a Maine Italian wrong Now that shouldn t be a biggie in the grand scheme of a pretty great book but since a perfect Maine Italian is my personal favorite comfort food ever then I took it seriously Had a tough time deciding a star rating on this oneit s a great book, visually and otherwisebut there were times that the author gave off this foodie snob vibe that got under my skin like how slicing good old gingerbread in wedges is a nicer presentation than squares , AND she has the idea of a Maine Italian wrong Now that shouldn t be a biggie in the grand scheme of a pretty great book but since a perfect Maine Italian is my personal favorite comfort food ever then I took it seriously Lots of good tidbits about the food movements in Maine, the goodness of local and some great recipes mixed with some that I ll never try Also charming quotes from children s books about Maine food, and fabulous photos
