The talent on our little island never ceases to amaze me: our friend and colleague Sandy Oliver has done it again!
Back in 1939 Maine novelist Kenneth Roberts’ niece, Marjorie Mosser published Good Maine Food with encouragement with her uncle. Reprints and updates followed in 1947, 1957, and 1974.
Fast forward to 2010 and Sandy Oliver, food historian, farmer, and contra dancer steps in to bring her knowledge of Maine food and Maine history to the updated version. In addition to her foreword, Sandy has also updated the recipes for the modern kitchen. It is a gorgeous, well-designed book that is the perfect gift for anyone with a connection to Maine.
We have a number of copies of Good Maine Food in stock, signed by Sandy, and we can easily have them inscribed to you or as a gift to someone else. If you are interested, click on the book photo and order directly through our web site. You can also reply to this e-mail and tell us how many you would like.
