Join us on Tuesday, June 19th at 7:00 PM for a special presentation by cookbook author and food historian and writer Sandra Oliver. Ms. Oliver will talk about her newest title: Cooking Maine Style: Tried and True Recipes from Down East. This book is based on the recipes of Marjorie Standish, an iconic figure in the world of traditional New England cooking, known for her popular column, “Cooking Down East” for the Maine Sunday Telegram. She emphasized simple, but good recipes, that could be made with ingredients that can be found in most pantries. Sandra Oliver, Maine’s modern-day Marjorie Standish, offers a carefully curated selection of the very best recipes from Standish’s cookbooks. Presented in a retro-inspired, elegantly designed format, with notes and anecdotes to put Standish’s recipes in context with current wisdom, this title promises to become a new classic in traditional cooking.
Refreshments will be provided from recipes from her cookbook and will be made by the Mayflower Book Club in memory of Annette Talbot. This evening will be a remembrance of Annette’s favorite thing – cooking and recipes. The Library will also be introducing a new collection of titles given in her memory by the Mayflower Book Club which will feature women’s biographies and memoirs.
Please note: this event was originally scheduled for May 8th and has been postponed to this new time.
