Linda Greenlaw has written another nice cookbook, this time with her mother. There are some very enjoyable pictures of Isle au Haut, where they live and pages intertwined with the recipes telling about life on the island. There are very few pictures of the finished dishes, and some especially ones like spinach-stuffed pork loin could have used some illustration to help you know how the food should look.The book contains; cocktails, snacks, light lunches and suppers, breakfasts, starters, mains, sides and sweets. Where the book shines is in the main dishes, which of course are mainly recipes for lobster, scallops, fish, clams and other seafood delights - although there are a few good ones for the meat lovers in there.We have really enjoyed her; not so old fashioneds ,the crab dip, her salad rolls, red crab salad, brunch egg casserole - which can be fixed the day before, grilled crab-stuffed mushrooms, flounder Florentine, macaroni salad with avocado and olives- a really fine and different twist on macaroni salad and the best of all -scallops baked in mushroom caps.Greenlaw writes some personal comments about many of the recipes. There is an index which includes peoples' names, recipe names, ingredients and type of dish. Recipes are not that hard or complicated and there are quite a few that will cook on a grill. The main objection is that there is a real lack of pictures of the finished dishes, which most cooks, no matter what their level of expertise would appreciate.This is a book that seafood lovers will appreciate and enthusiasts of summers in New England will like too.
For the Greenlaws, like most everyone in New England, summer is for getting outside. And entertaining all those guests who've been scarcer than hen's teeth since last summer.Mother and daughter (authors of Recipes from a Very Small Island) have organized their book accordingly, starting with cocktails and nibbles for sunset (including Grilled Kielbasa with Lemon Juice, simply browned kielbasa sausage with lemon squeezed over it, which is more than the sum of its parts).Light lunches and suppers for lazy days include lobster rolls and several kinds of lobster salads (including one with blueberry and asparagus), of course, as well as (sustainable) Red Crab Salad and Veggie Sandwiches for picnics. Then there's a quick breakfast break before moving on to Feasts with Family and Friends, starters, mains, and sides.Here we find Striper Ceviche and Beer-steamed Clams with Drawn Lemon Butter, Barbecued Lobster with Lime and Chile Butter and Blue Cheese Burgers with Bourbon-black tea ketchup, Grilled Corn with Jalapeno Citrus Butter, and Smoky Maple Baked Beans.Dessert? Lemon-Blueberry Mousse Tart, Blueberry Cheesecake, Chewy Raspberry Brownies.The Greenlaws have gathered recipes from friends and relatives, locals and culinary professionals, and emphasize fresh local ingredients and ease of preparation. Head notes include family stories and fishing captain Linda Greenlaw's engaging dry wit, and full color photos make everything look summery scrumptious.
Bought this for my daughter and her husband who now live in Australia. Loved the stories by Linda and her mother, and recipe variations on some Maine standards.
Great local recipes and descriptions of colorful island life.Recipes made with many ingredients available from local farmers markets.Useful all year round.
