Maine food is about putting on a bib and getting messy with lobster in the summer. In the winter, it's about tossing brisket and potatoes in a pot on the back of the woodstove. Maine Classics brings the carefree spirit of those who work the land and sea to life.

More than 150 simple, straightforward dishes are organized by the shore, the sea, the forest, the farm, the garden, the dairy, and the bakery. Celebrate Maine's bounty with recipes such as Ham with Fried Apples, Corn Fritters with Maple Syrup, Classic Lobster Rolls, and Pickled Fiddlehead Ferns. Stories of farmers, lobstermen, cheesemakers, and old-school bakers "infuse our cooking and inspire us to explore our own culinary legacies," say award-winning authors Mark and Clark. Chock-full of full-color photographs, this cookbook is definitely a Maine classic.
