Join us for a delicious look behind the scenes of the Maine Bicentennial Community Cookbook with editors Margaret Hathaway, Karl Schatz, and Don Lindgren. For this celebratory cookbook, these three editors collected recipes, stories, and photos from kitchens across the state, with contributors ranging from everyday families and home cooks to award-winning chefs and notable Mainers. Mixing contemporary recipes with excerpts from historic Maine community cookbooks and essays about the history and future of Maine’s culinary traditions, the cookbook is illustrated with family photos and hand-written recipe cards from all 16 countries. More than 200 recipes celebrate Maine home cooking in a way that reminds us that the food we eat connects us to the people and places we love. Two dollars from each cookbook sold goes to organizations fighting food insecurity in Maine. To date, the cookbook has distributed more than $14,000 in the fight against hunger.
