Synopsis: Born in Alhao, Portugal, in 1914, Mary Alice Luiz Cook came to Provincetown with her family to join her fisherman father in 1915. In this delightful book, she shares more than 70 of her family recipes. The book also includes a personal memoir of her early years in Provincetown, and is illustrated with many historic photos, never before published, by George Elmer Browne, a painter living in Provincetown in the first half of the 20th century.
About the Author: Mary Alice Luiz Cook was born in Olhao, Portugal, in 1914, the daughter of a fisherman. She came to Provincetown in 1915 and grew up eating and speaking Portuguese. She learned to speak English at Provincetown High School and graduated in 1931. Her husband, Edward Cook, a Petty Officer in the Coast Guard, was stationed in Provincetown on the C.G. Cutter Harriet Land when they met; they were married in 1938. Until she died in 1993, Alice Cook lived in the family home on Alden Street, the house her father bought in 1925 and where her three children were born. Alice was well known in the local community for her culinary skills and her warm heart. She started writing this recipe book and her memoirs of Provincetown in 1976 because her many friends were always requesting family recipes and asking her to tell stories about Provincetown in the "old days." We are fortunate that she left this record of her Portuguese heritage as her legacy to the town and to all those who knew her.
