Lobster Newburg, boiled dinner, bean hole suppers, whoopie pies, and more! If there’s one thing that brings Mainers together it’s the flavors of this great state. The Maine Bicentennial Community Cookbook celebrates Maine’s rich culinary traditions – old and new – exploring indigenous foodways, hearty Yankee cuisine, community cookbook classics, and favorite dishes of new Mainers. This collection of more than 200 recipes spans kitchens across the state: pulling dishes from grandma’s recipe box, award=winning chefs, Maine personalities, and rustic fishing camps. Celebrating the state’s whole community with recipes from all 16 counties, this cookbook includes heartwarming stories and ishes from both prominent and everyday Mainers, and is beautifully illustrated with family photos, handwritten recipe cards, and historic community cookbook covers. This lovely testament to home booking and the community cookbook tradition in Maine reminds us how the food we cook connects us to the people and places we love. It will surely become a treasured keepsake of Maine’s Bicentennial celebration for all who love to cook – and eat!
Proceeds from community cookbooks have historically gone to benefit a cause within the community. Working with food security advocates within the state, $2 from every book sold will support organizations fighting hunger in Maine.
