“If you love seafood, this is the book for you. Part cookbook, part restaurant guide, this book is chock full of New England lore. As a travelogue, Dojny captures the essence of New England with behind-the-scene stories of the men and women who make the region unforgettable.

About the Author

She is the author of Lobster!, The New England Cookbook, The New England Clam Shack Cookbook, and Dishing Up® Maine. Dojny writes regularly for the Portland Herald.

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
Now in a completely updated second edition featuring twenty new recipes, six new restaurants and three new recommended "clam-shack weekend itineraries" for making the most of New England dining, The New England Clam Shack Cookbook is far more than just a collection of recipes. Interspersed between the easy-to-follow instructions to make seafood delights from Lobster Stew to Old-Fashioned Salt Codfish Cakes to Creamy Cape Cod Clam Chowder are anecdotes, New England culinary trivia, quotable quotes, and much more. Illustrated with black-and-white and color images throughout, The New England Clam Shack Cookbook is as much fun for gourmands to page through as it is for seafood chefs of all skill and experience levels to cook from. Highly recommended for both personal and community library cookbook collections.

My husband and I used the New England Clam Shack Cookbook to decide our summer destination. We went to four of the restaurants/shacks and loved all four. Great recipes to use too.

The recipes are easy to follow, and not too eomplicated to be beyond your summer-cottage fare. We have enjoyed every single recipe we have used - thanks for the newsy background on all the little restaurants as well. It's a fun read - and a great cook book.
