The book will contain wonderful Maine favorites like the classic lobster roll and grilled corn, and there will also be more exotic choices like sea scallop risotto and butterscotch praline parfait. Each recipe is complemented by Rebecca's stories of Maine.
More than just a cookbook and memoir, Lobster Rolls and Blueberry Pie will also have instructions for how to host your own clambake or a raw bar cocktail party, whether you live in a small apartment in the city or a cottage on the beach.
