The Legacy of Three Melissas www.anadamabreadbook.com
Announcing the release of my cookbook which I have been busy with for the last few months! Over 300 New England Historic Recipes with history and commentary on Cape Ann Massachusetts. It is available on my website www.anadamabreadbook.com and locally on Cape Ann at The Bookstore, Toad Hall, Harbor Loop Gifts, and Cape Ann Museum. There will be a public book signing at 11AM, Sat. Aug. 14th at The Cape Ann Museum, Pleasant St., Gloucester, MA 01930
The book includes a chapter on the history of Anadama Bread which my family baked commercially from the 1930's to the 1970's on Cape Ann and distributed the bread regionally, throughout New England during that time.
There are also recipes for such favorites as Joe Froggers (a rum and molasses cookie taken to sea by sailors), Easterly Inn Popovers, Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins, New England style Clambakes, Clam Fritters, Chowders, Melissa's Garlic Dressing, and many more regional favorites with interesting commentary and history.
