Fresh From Maine: Recipes and Stories from the State's Best Chefs
As Maine has exploded onto the national culinary scene in recent years, Americans have come to value the state's food and restaurants for the very close ties between producer and chef, the very short distance between sea, soil, and table. Now, in Fresh From Maine, two of the state s culinary insiders have put together an intimate, far-ranging, and entertaining introduction to some of the best of those chefs and their food. A treat for curious cooks, travelers, and gastronomes, the book is packed with recipes and lush photography, its pages spiced with chefs stories and a few secrets. Making the most of what we can wrest from the soil or fish from the sea or forage from the woods, Sanders writes, this is what Mainers have always done, a rich tradition that, today, feeds ... our restaurant tables.
