Overview

Old recipes, like old friends, are usually most dependable, observes noted author Kenneth Roberts in his pithy introduction to this classic recipe compendium put together by his niece, Marjorie Mosser, in the 1930s. The long career of this bible of Maine cookery has proved him right. With Robert's outspoken commentaries sprinkled throughout, excerpts from some of his best-selling books, and maxims from Maine kitchens, this old favorite is a must-own collection for any modern cook. Down East Books is proud to present this revamped edition-with a brand new foreword by food historian Sandra Oliver-as part of the all-new Best Maine Food cookbook series.

Editorial Reviews

Many of the recipes in the original edition of Good Maine Food were old family favorites when Marjorie Mosser's cookbook compendium first appeared in 1939. This new third edition retains the best of these standards and adds a telling foreword by food historian Sandra Oliver. Like all previous readers, new ones will enjoy the friendly, untamed running commentary by novelist Kenneth Roberts.
