||The Taste of Gloucester - A Fisherman's Wife Cooks - 8th Edition|
"The Taste of Gloucester" cookbook was created by the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives and the Cape Ann League of Women's Voters to share recipes of lesser known species of fish as well as familiar ones. Their cookbook, The Taste of Gloucester has sold over 200,000 copies. The Taste of Gloucester recipes are drawn from tradition and are variations of ethnic specialties for different occasions.
