Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Linda Greenlaw has proven herself to be a talented fisherwoman and author (The Hungry Ocean; The Lobster Chronicles; etc.). And now she shows that she's also a pretty good cook, with this book, co-written with her mother. The two share seafood-heavy recipes tested in the kitchens of their homes on Maine's Isle au Haut, as well as tales—mostly written by Linda—of life on the island (her essay on the improbabilities of pulling off a clambake is a riot). It's a charming collection. As one would expect, there are lots of recipes involving fish, lobster, crabs, blueberries and cranberries. But the Greenlaws present a nice variety of old and new (e.g., classic Island Lobster Rolls appear in the same chapter as unusual Wicked Good Lobster and Black Bean Chili). It's not just summer food, either: there are recipes for hearty dishes meant to help one through a New England winter (Mama's Maple-Flavored Baked Pea Beans; Bibo's Pumpkin Squares) as well as a chapter on meat and poultry. Most recipes are uncomplicated, and all evoke the character of the beautiful, rustic land from which they come. (July)

Linda Greenlaw was one of the "stars" in the book, The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger. Subsequently, she has written three autobiographical books of her own talking about her adventures as a longline fishing captain and a lobsterman. Now, Linda and her Mom, Martha, have come up with a cookbook which is more than just that. It talks about an approach to cooking and eating which is as interesting as the receipes that grace the pages. Not only are the receipes mouthwatering, but the writing (and photography) that accompany the book are a treat as well. Funny, irreverant and so Down East that you cannot wait to start road testing these puppies. For those of us who are "natives" the former "Official Cookbook of Maine" was written by Marge Standish. It was the one you always went to when you wanted to cook something like your Mom used to and people didn't worry about calories or cholesteral. Well, move over Marge. Martha (and Linda) are the new authorities on Down East Cooking. Some of the recipies such as "Jello shots" and how they got put in the book will just make you laugh out loud. Should I ever find myself stranded on the Isle Au Haut, I will just follow my nose to Martha's kitchen.

Do yourself a favor if you like to cook and give yourself this book and if you are wondering about Christmas presents...look no further.

I've enjoyed all of Linda's books, but this one made me visit the island to see for myself. My wife and I have tried and enjoyed some of the recipes, but the tales are the beauty of the book. I wanted to meet Linda or her mother on the island, but only accidentally; alas, we didn't run into either one. I heartily recommend all of Linda's books.

I have been a fan of Linda Greenlaw since reading The Lobster Chronicles a few years ago. I was born in Lewiston, Maine and have always been drawn to the coast of Maine, even though I haven't lived there since I was 4.

Recently, I saw Linda and her mother on the Today Show making a few recipes from their new cookbook, I HAD TO HAVE IT.

I have already made the Blueberry Buckle from the book, it was delicious!

The book includes stories and pictures of the Coast of Maine that are just terrific.

The recipes are easy to follow and provide a real taste of Maine.

I bought three copies. One for a wedding gift, one for a cousin of mine who also loves the Maine coast, but lives in Florida, and one for ME, of course!

Enjoy!

A wonderful, rustic setting, the related stories about the given recipes were interesting as to local color, anecdotes, and life. This was a gift from thoughtful friend, and I bought her one in return. I collect cook books and this was a good one. Les Kinkade

Linda Greenlaw is known for his boating and fishing advice; but here's another connection: a cookbook which gathers dishes from her mother, Martha, to celebrate her homecoming from the sea. Here are hearty dishes, from the family favorite Maine Shrimp Bisque to Grilled Swordfish with Double Mustard Sauce and Mama's Maple-Flavored Baked Pea Beans, many with color photos of artistically arranged completed dishes. If it's hearty yet appealing dishes you wish, with a New England flavor, be sure Recipes From A Very Small Island is on your shelf.
