Sugar & Salt:
A Year at Home and at Sea

Annie Mahle’s newest cookbook has finally arrived!

Sugar & Salt CoverSugar & Salt, Book One (The Blue Book) is a collection of recipes, crafts, thoughts and stories from an adventurous, hilarious, sometimes frenetic, unique life off the Coast of Maine. Annie Mahle has two kitchens, one a floating restaurant and B&B that sails as a Maine windjammer all summer long, the Schooner J. & E. Riggin and the other her home, cooking for their family of four. As much a cookbook as it is a story of a lifestyle that is seasonal and sustainable.

For over 25 years Annie has honed her craft with both knife and pen. She started working on windjammers as a mess cook, and quickly developed a passion for cooking. She has spent the last 15 years working and learning, graduation from mess cook to head cook on the windjammers to private chef on a Caribbean yacht. She further developed her skills as a sous chef to classically trained Swiss chef Hans Bucher and at the Culinary Institute of America. She currently owns and operates the Schooner J. & E. Riggin with her husband, Captain Jon Finger. Her first cookbook, At Home, At Sea, was highlighted on the Today Show and her food featured in dozens of national media outlets including the Food Network and Traditional Home Magazine.  In the winter she continues to create new recipes and shares them in her food column The Maine Ingredient for the Portland Press Herald. You can read more of Annie’s writing on her recipe and lifestyle blog – At Home & At Sea.
