“I’m delighted to see a book that puts the spotlight on the Maryland farmers, watermen and chefs who work so hard to bring us fresh, local, and seasonal foods. Dishing Up Maryland
reminds us not just of Maryland’s legendary culinary offerings, but of the role we all play in sustaining a robust farm economy.”—U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.)
“There’s more to Maryland’s culinary attractions than just crab cakes and oysters...and this beautifully illustrated book proves it.”—Chicago Tribune
