Dishing Up Maryland is now available at Amazon.com and in bookstores.
Dishing Up Maryland captures the unique and delectable cuisine of Maryland with 150 recipes from the Alleghenies to the Chesapeake Bay. The book is authored by award-winning Maryland writer Lucie Snodgrass. Stunning photography by Edwin Remsberg, himself a Maryland farmer, provides the visual counterparts to stories of the farm families and chefs featured in the book. John Shields, renowned chef who embodies the buy local effort, provides an insightful foreword to the book.
We are thrilled about the launch of Dishing Up Maryland. Its a beautiful cookbook that showcases Maryland and the diversity of our farms as well as the talented and creative chefs who incorporate our fresh, local food into their fine menus, said Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance. We hope this will help to inspire more publications like this to showcase Marylands agricultural traditions and support our farmers.
The book, published by Storey Publishing, is available online and wherever fine books are sold.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the Maryland's Best program to promote the purchase of locally grown and raised products for the benefit of the State's farmers, watermen and related businesses.
The launch event, catered by Craig Sewell of A Cooks Café (Annapolis), was sponsored by the Maryland Wineries Association, Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association, Susans on Smith Island, Maryland Cut Flower Growers Association, and Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company.
Scarborough Farms, of St. Marys County, provided the daffodils for the event.
