Maine Mapmaker's Kitchen Reviews
I use this cookbook when I want delicious AND healthy recipes. For example, white flour, sugar and butter are replaced by combinations of oat flour, toasted wheat germ, canola oil,to name a few ingredients which are more nutritious. I love the introductions of recipe explaining the inspiration for the ingredients. This cook book is full of helpful tips for food preparations and interesting tidbits. But most of all is is well written and easy to get around to find what you want. The focus on local foods in season is the way I like to cook. I love the pie crusts and the desert recipes which often are lower in fat and sugar. At the end of each recipe I often find simple variations that have unique flavorful combinations. This cook book is the most used one in my Kitchen. I love it!
I had this cookbook for awhile before giving it a look-see. My sister-in-law called and asked, "have you tried the butternut bisque!!?" So my husband and I opened it up and started reading. Not only is the butternut bisque amazing, we made it with half and half, the story underneath the recipes is compelling. Reading Jane's useful tidbits and cooking life brings calmness to the creativity of the kitchen. I look forward to trying her yogurt next, that and I remember a 7 bean salad that needs trying.
When I want to make something really tasty, not fussy, and with an eye toward lower-fat and fresh ingredients, then this book is first off my cookbook shelf. Crosen put all her heart into this cookbook and it shows. From the recipes to the explanatory and biographical text to the delightful illustrations (by Crosen) this book delivers delight with every usage. I enjoy giving this as a wedding present -- it works well for kitchen mavens, for people who already have everything, and for those who believe there is substance behind the Maine mystique.
