Cooking Down East
Cooking Down East: Favorite Maine Recipes
Cooking Down East is undoubtedly the best-selling Maine cookbook ever. Originally published in the 1960s, this compelling collection of recipes for the home cook features the New England cooking traditions and the Maine ingredients that made Marjorie Standish’s recipe column in the Maine Sunday Telegram a wild success. Down East has revamped this classic with another seminal Maine chef’s talent: Melissa Kelly, the James Beard Award-winning chef at Primo in Rockland. In this new hardcover edition, Kelly encourages readers to seek out the bountiful and accessible seasonal, fresh ingredients and gives helpful tips on adapting some of the classic recipes for today’s kitchen. Plus, with more than a dozen brand new recipes of her own, Kelly adds a modern twist to this cherished volume, making it even more essential for the modern Maine cook. Includes over 200 recipes.
