Building on the success of the award-winning Maine Bicentennial Community Cookbook, this second volume is a brand new collection of more than 200 family recipes, stories, and photos.

The Maine Community Cookbook, Volume 2: 200 More Recipes Celebrating Home Cooking in the Pine Tree State, is filled with dishes and stories from home kitchens in all of Maine's 16 counties, including recipes from well-known Mainers such as Senator Olympia Snowe, historian Heather Cox Richardson, 101-year-old lobsterwoman Virginia Oliver, James Beard Award-winning Chef Sam Hayward, best-selling author Abdi Nor Iftin, and summer resident and humorist John Hodgman.

At the heart of the cookbook are recipes and stories from everyday Maine families. Breaking bread together gives us comfort and strength, in good times and bad. Whether we're teaching our kids to cook family recipes over Zoom, or gathering together to share them at the table, our food traditions help define who we are, and bring us together as a community.

Like the first book, Volume 2 will raise money to aid organizations fighting hunger in the state of Maine, with $2 from each copy sold distributed to non-profits in Maine that fight food insecurity and inequity.
The Maine Bicentennial Community Cookbook, now in its fifth printing with more than 13,000 copies in print, has raised and distributed more than $20,000 to 30 different organizations fighting hunger in all corners of the state.
