Wild Maine Recipes Book | Kathleen Krukowski Gooding


Here’s your chance to shine in the kitchen with new and easy wild game recipes. I cannot count the number of times I have heard people say “I’ve never had a good game meat dinner.” Now you can! You will enjoy the tasty combination of spices from your own cupboard or dare to be different and try new products from around the U.S.

In Black Fly Stew: Wild Maine Recipes, Pretty Marsh resident Kate Gooding and her own Northern Solstice Publishing offer recipes from the length and breadth of the state, including Grown-Up Macaroni and Cheese with Lobster, Baby Boomer Whoopie Pies, Maine Black Bear Stew, Warm Black Fly Vinaigrette Dressing, Maple Moose Barbecue, Partridge with Apple Cider Glaze, and Jackman Gingerbread. This is a hoot, and we think, a new classic.
