Windjammer Cooking This beautiful, full color cookbook has more than 50 recipes from Maine’s famous windjammer fleet as well as photographs and information on the windjammers, their owners, cooks and crew and the beautiful coast of Maine. Recipes include hearty seagoing favorites like chowders, bisques and stews as well as inventive new creations like Baked Salmon with Sour Cream Dill Caper Sauce, and Chocolate Zucchini Cake. And no Maine cookbook would be complete without recipes for the windjammers’ famous lobster bakes on the beach. An eight-minute DVD is included with the book.

“This book is a voyage in itself. . .but at its heart—as at the heart of every vessel—are mouth watering recipes and descriptions of the fragrances that rise from the schooners’ galley stoves, providing unforgettable sustenance and comfort. From French Toast Soufflé to Beef Stew to Citrus Cilantro Salmon with Pineapple Mango Salsa,there are more than 50 ways to feed your palate and a myriad of ways to feed your saltwater soul.”
– Jon Wilson, founder and Editor-in-Chief,
Wooden Boat magazine

“A windjammer under full sail is a beautiful sight to behold. It appears that what goes on in the galleys below is also very special. This beautifully photographed cookbook is really a treat—a feast for the eyes and the stomach.” – Jasper White, Founder Summer Shack restaurants and author of seven cookbooks including Cooking from New England, Lobster at Home and The Summer Shack Cookbook

“You can taste the salt air and feel the boat beneath your feet as the recipes and photos unfold in this book. You can feel the heart and tradition in the food and the people. I was hooked instantly and love the way Windjammer Cooking brings to life the romance of the sea.” — Chef Jeff Tenner, Director of Research and Development, Legal Seafoods
