"[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 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?
Dishing Up® Maine: 165 Recipes That Capture Authentic Down East Flavors features 165 recipes presented in seven chapters. While each chapter is listed in an interactive Table of Contents, individual recipes are not. Luckily, the publishers did think to include an Index that is also interactive, not as functional as a complete listing of individual recipes as part of the Table of Contents but certainly more well thought out than many I've seen. Those chapters are -
1. Starters, Snacks, Sandwiches and So On
2. Fresh From The Farmer's Market
3. The Chowder Pot, Soup Tureen, and Other One-Pot Wonders
4. Maine-Style Meat and Poultry
5. Jewels of the Sea: Fin Fish and Shellfish Maine Style
6. For the Breakfast Table, Bread Box, and Pantry
7. Delectable Desserts
I've noticed complaints from born-and-bred Mainers that Dishing Up® Maine: 165 Recipes That Capture Authentic Down East Flavors isn't "real" Maine food, and frankly, looking through these recipes I find that I must agree that such things as Jalapeño Johnnycakes Topped with Smoked Fish, Limed Lobster and Melon Skewers, and Lobster Salad with Roasted Corn Salsa are a million miles from traditional Maine food.Read more ›
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.
Again nice assortments of recipes, information and full color photos. I'm just not sold on Kindle cookbooks. It's just too time consuming to browse or find that certain recipe you want.
