It’s here! Maurer Meals’ first cookbook, Maine Fruits: Sweet and Saucy.

Rhubarb martinis, strawberry salsa, pear clafouti, blueberry and onion compote, and Thomas Jefferson’s peach ice cream. In addition to these and many other fabulous recipes, Maine Fruits is full of stories, tips, old and trusted kitchen know-how, family favorites and experimental delights. It’s a great gift for new cooks who are just getting started and for experienced cooks who want to explore new ways with fruit. Far more than a cookbook, this conversation of culinary wit and wisdom among cooks across centuries is also fun to read.
