Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Dojny (The New England Clam Shack Cookbook) "moved to Maine for the food"; indeed, the former Connecticut resident has an expansive knowledge of 21st-century (mostly coastal) culinary Maine. Traditional Maine fare such as Classic Down East Haddock Chowder and Molasses-Baked Maine Yellow-Eyes (baked beans), and Maine fast-food specialties like the Clam Shack Fried Clam Rolls (fried clams in a hot-dog bun) sit side-by-side Smoked Salmon and Scallion Triangles, and Chase's Daily Chipotle-Roasted Winter Squash Tacos, inspired by a new generation of organic farmers, artisan food producers and sophisticated restaurateurs. Although clearly inspired by artisanal and fresh food, Dojny doesn't hesitate to make her recipes accessible to the inexperienced cook (e.g., if you suffer from "Fear of Piecrust syndrome," use supermarket piecrusts; they "taste fine"). In addition to recipes, Dojny gives helpful Maine-oriented hints, on, for instance, eating lobster and choosing the best apples for pie. The book's prolific photos of scenic locales may inspire a Maine vacation, and Dojny also provides readers with information on where to find farmer's markets, gourmet food shops and notable eateries. Many of the folks behind these establishments contribute recipes to the book, from gourmet restaurant chefs to clam shack cooks. (June)

Review

“Flecked with recipes from…Maine’s best eateries (and best home cooks)…a beautifully photographed, fresh take on New England cuisine.”— Daryna Tobey, Wine Enthusiast Magazine (Daryna Tobey Wine Enthusiast Magazine)

“Bingo! If a fried clam roll, a bowl of creamy lobster chowder, or a stack of wild blueberry pancakes rings your chimes, and you can’t hop a jet, let Brooke Dojny ‘dish it up’ for you….authentic national treasures from the glorious state of Maine.” (Tom Douglas, Chef-owner of Dahlia Lounge, Palace Kitchen, Etta’s and Lola; author of Tom’s Big Dinners: Big Time Home Cooking for Family and Friends)

“Although clearly inspired by artisanal and fresh food, Dojny doesn’t hesitate to make her recipes accessible to the inexperienced cook.” (Castine (ME) Patriot)

"[Brooke] Dojny... likes to say she moved to Maine for the food.  In her volume, she covers all the things that make the food scene there so alluring."

(The Boston Globe)

“If you don’t have this book, put it on your Christmas list. It’s filled with seasonal, traditional dishes and every one I’ve tried has been delicious.” (The Times Record, Maine)

More About the Author

Brooke Dojny is an award-winning food journalist and cookbook author with a specialty in writing about New England food. Her recent books on the subject are The New England Cookbook (1999), The New England Clam Shack Cookbook (2003, revised 2008), Dishing Up Maine (2006), New England Home Cooking (2011), and Lobster! (2012).

Brooke began her career as a chef-caterer for Martha Stewart and also contributed to Martha's first book, Entertaining, which is when she caught the cookbook-writing bug. In the 1980s, she worked for the original COOK'S Magazine as a recipe tester and developer, equipment tester, and assistant food stylist. Teaming up with Melanie Barnard, another COOK'S freelancer, the duo launched a syndicated newspaper column and, in 1985, published their first cookbook, Sunday Suppers, which was nominated for an IACP award. Several other titles followed, including Let's Eat In and Parties! (both nominated for James Beard awards), and The AMA Family Cookbook which was a James Beard Award winner in 1998. In 1998 Brooke won the Newman's Own/Good Housekeeping recipe contest (in the food professional category) and had the pleasure of donating her $10,000 winnings to charity. She has made numerous television and radio appearances around the country.

For many years, Brooke and Melanie co-wrote "Every Night Cooking," a regular monthly column in Bon Appetit Magazine. Brooke's work has appeared in Food & Wine, Saveur, and Cooking Light. She currently writes a weekly column in the Portland Press Herald and is a frequent contributor to Down East Magazine. She lives on the coast of Maine where she can be found hanging out at farmers' markets and lobster pounds. You can visit her author page at wwww.facebook.com/brookedojny.

Format: Paperback
Each summer, I take a trip to Maine for one main reason--to eat. Sure I hike, explore the coastline, keep an eye out for Stephen King sightings, but really, I'm there for the food. Everyone knows the lobster roll is the reigning celebrity of Maine dishes--and this book features plenty of mouth-watering recipes for lobster--but as Brooke Dojny knows, wild Maine blueberry pies, chowders, authentic baked beans, not to mention scores of fresh vegetable concoctions are all quintessential Down East dishes. The recipes contributed by signature Maine restaurants provide a sort of culinary tour of the state but Dojny's original recipes celebrate all foods that evoke true tastes of Maine.

The photographs are some of the most stunning I've found in cookbooks. Together with Dojny's local stories and food lore, this is at once a cookbook, a tour guide, and a souvenir--a way to enjoy a Maine experience whether you get there yearly or once in a lifetime. I made the crab cakes just the other day--believe it or not, they were easy and delicious! Can it get any better than that?

Format: Paperback
Maine is a place that conjures up magical images of Pine Trees, lobsters, lighthouses, and sparkling blue water. Brooke Dojny's book adds to the magical image of Maine with her recipes for classic Maine dishes like Lobster Rolls, Baked Beans, Blueberry Muffins and Clam Chowder. She also gives tourism information on what restaurants are 'hot,' and where to buy farm-fresh ingredients for cooking at your home or your Maine lakeside cottage. She identifies Maine as a place where people like she, and Chef Sam Hayward of Fore Street Restaurant in Portland, literally moved for the food. She thinks it's the next great outpost for foodies. However she is concerned about keeping Maine unspoiled so its charm can remain the same.

Brooke's book is fabulous whether you're going to actually cook from it or whether you want to dream about a Maine getaway. The full-color photos by Scott Dorrance are incredibly enticing.

I would highly recommend buying Brooke's book for yourself and copies to give as gifts. It's the best souvenir of a Maine vacation I can imagine.

Format: Paperback
Brooke Dojny came to Maine for the food, and that's good enough reason to love Maine. Brooke is an experienced, talented, and thoroughly dedicated professional. She has done her homework and chronicles the old foodways and the newest culinary surpises of her adopted state. And she is also passionate and thoroughly in love with Maine. And that's good enough for me. Brooke has a stellar reputation as a food writer, and has unfailingly good taste and style. Mainers are lucky to count her among their residents, and most fortunate to have this book as a culinary journey through a magical and delicious state that is as heaped in tradition as it is in blueberries.

Format: Paperback
I realize I am not the target audience for this book, but my boyfriend had a copy, and I went to it for some inspiration for essential, nostalgic Maine cooking, and was a bit disappointed. It's a great cookbook with some great ideas and recipes, and I'll probably refer to it again in the future when I want to put a spin on a quintessentially Maine ingredient, but it represents Maine food about as well as the actors in a Stephen King movie adaptation represent Maine people, which is to say not very well at all. For true Downeast cooking, pick up a Marjorie Standish cookbook. For innovative takes on the ingredients available in Maine, this might be a better choice.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Stephen on December 14, 2006
Format: Paperback
Covers classic Maine foods: lobsters, mussels, blueberries, and baked beans with some old style recipes and modern variations.

More interesting are numerous sidebars touching on various aspects of the growing Maine "foodie" scene. New restaurants, growers, stores, and farms are highlighted.

A few maps would have been nice,and some of the recipes might be too far from convention for traditionalists.

A must have for any "Maine-o-phile"-native or those who wished they were. I found it simply "pleasant" to read. Do yourself a favor: get some mud from the seashore, throw some sea-salt in the air, turn your TV to "Scenes of the North Atlantic," and read this book.
