The very best New England recipes from America's most beloved fisherman -- and her mother!

A New England cookbook from Linda Greenlaw and her mother.

Linda Greenlaw has already let readers in on the thrilling, often hilarious onboard lives of fishermen. Now she and her mother reveal what happens onshore -- in fishermen's kitchens. Packed with colorful anecdotes about seaside life and brimming with more than seventy-five delicious recipes ranging from Penobscot Bay Clam Dip and Point Lookout Lobster Salad to Fishermen's Beef with Guinness, Down East Crab Cakes, and Maine Blueberry Pie, this collection showcases the talents and idiosyncratic charms of the Greenlaw family, as well as the delicious cuisine of coastal New England.

Written in Linda's inimitable and witty style, Stuffed to the Gills is a cookbook that you'll want to savor, and you won't be able to resist serving up its delicious New England classics to your hungry crew!

About the Author:

Linda Greenlaw has been a deep-sea fisherman for 18 years, becoming the first and only female swordfish captain in the Grand Banks Fleet. She was raised in Maine and graduated from Colby College. Greenlaw now lives on Isle au Haut, Maine, where she captains a lobster boat.

From Publishers Weekly:

Linda Greenlaw has proven herself to be a talented fisherwoman and author (The Hungry Ocean; The Lobster Chronicles; etc.). And now she shows that she's also a pretty good cook, with this book, co-written with her mother. The two share seafood-heavy recipes tested in the kitchens of their homes on Maine's Isle au Haut, as well as tales—mostly written by Linda—of life on the island (her essay on the improbabilities of pulling off a clambake is a riot). It's a charming collection. As one would expect, there are lots of recipes involving fish, lobster, crabs, blueberries and cranberries. But the Greenlaws present a nice variety of old and new (e.g., classic Island Lobster Rolls appear in the same chapter as unusual Wicked Good Lobster and Black Bean Chili). It's not just summer food, either: there are recipes for hearty dishes meant to help one through a New England winter (Mama's Maple-Flavored Baked Pea Beans; Bibo's Pumpkin Squares) as well as a chapter on meat and poultry. Most recipes are uncomplicated, and all evoke the character of the beautiful, rustic land from which they come. (July)
