Sugar and Salt A Year at Home and at Sea by Annie Mahle is quite the cookbook. My favorite cookbooks tell a story and Annie’s story makes a really good read. You see, along with her husband they own a Schooner, the J. & E. Riggin, where they take passengers on a 4 to 10 day sailing vacation through Maine’s Penobscot Bay. Annie does the cooking and she does it well.
Annie creates her comforting meals from local, sustainable ingredients when possible. What she does on a boat is impressive. We are talking 30 people to feed without electricity, with little water and refrigeration and she cooks on a wood stove!
- Head on over to the J.&E. Riggin site and check out what the typical week looks like. Come back here and leave a comment telling me which day you would look most forward to and why.
