5.0 out of 5 stars For the Best in DownEast Cooking - It's Here!! Sept. 25 2005
By John R. Linnell - Published on Amazon.com
Linda Greenlaw was one of the "stars" in the book, The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger. Subsequently, she has written three autobiographical books of her own talking about her adventures as a longline fishing captain and a lobsterman. Now, Linda and her Mom, Martha, have come up with a cookbook which is more than just that. It talks about an approach to cooking and eating which is as interesting as the receipes that grace the pages. Not only are the receipes mouthwatering, but the writing (and photography) that accompany the book are a treat as well. Funny, irreverant and so Down East that you cannot wait to start road testing these puppies. For those of us who are "natives" the former "Official Cookbook of Maine" was written by Marge Standish. It was the one you always went to when you wanted to cook something like your Mom used to and people didn't worry about calories or cholesteral. Well, move over Marge. Martha (and Linda) are the new authorities on Down East Cooking. Some of the recipies such as "Jello shots" and how they got put in the book will just make you laugh out loud. Should I ever find myself stranded on the Isle Au Haut, I will just follow my nose to Martha's kitchen.

Do yourself a favor if you like to cook and give yourself this book and if you are wondering about Christmas presents...look no further.

wonderful book

easy to find ingredients if you are in Maine

5.0 out of 5 stars It made me visit the island Dec 6 2005
By William G. Mcarthur - Published on Amazon.com
I've enjoyed all of Linda's books, but this one made me visit the island to see for myself. My wife and I have tried and enjoyed some of the recipes, but the tales are the beauty of the book. I wanted to meet Linda or her mother on the island, but only accidentally; alas, we didn't run into either one. I heartily recommend all of Linda's books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious! Aug. 7 2005
By Lauri Bessey - Published on Amazon.com
I have been a fan of Linda Greenlaw since reading The Lobster Chronicles a few years ago. I was born in Lewiston, Maine and have always been drawn to the coast of Maine, even though I haven't lived there since I was 4.

Recently, I saw Linda and her mother on the Today Show making a few recipes from their new cookbook, I HAD TO HAVE IT.

I have already made the Blueberry Buckle from the book, it was delicious!

The book includes stories and pictures of the Coast of Maine that are just terrific.

The recipes are easy to follow and provide a real taste of Maine.

I bought three copies. One for a wedding gift, one for a cousin of mine who also loves the Maine coast, but lives in Florida, and one for ME, of course!

4.0 out of 5 stars recipes from a very small island Oct. 8 2005
By Lester D. Kinkade - Published on Amazon.com
A wonderful, rustic setting, the related stories about the given recipes were interesting as to local color, anecdotes, and life. This was a gift from thoughtful friend, and I bought her one in return. I collect cook books and this was a good one. Les Kinkade
