How to *Catch* Our New Cookbook

Updated: Jan 24, 2022

It’s been a labor of love, but we are so excited that “Catch: A Maine Seafood Cookbook” from the Maine Coast Fishermen's Association is nearly here! What started as an idea from two fishermen’s wives is now a cookbook for everyone to enjoy. This cookbook has been a true collaboration across Maine; recipes were submitted by innkeepers, restauranters, and people from all over the state who wanted to share their tried and true recipes.

The cookbook is available TO ORDER HERE.

Because of transportation, weather, shipping, and standard 2020/2021 stuff, we just can’t guarantee delivery by Christmas.


Update (12/21/21)

The cookbook has arrived! We got an email this morning from Penmor Lithographers that they were on their way to our office in Brunswick to deliver the cookbooks. We spent time today dropping cookbooks off to stores in Midcoast and Southern Maine. And guys? They look amazing! We can't wait for you to pick up, purchase, share, and gift your copy.

Please join us on Thursday, December 23 at our Pop-Up Shop!

From 12-5 pm you can pick up a cookbook (or a few) and check out MCFA swag. You can see some of the gear we will have available at our shop HERE.
