Taste of Gloucester Cook Book 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. The original purpose of the cookbook was the promotion of underutilized fish to help the local fleet diversify. Squid, Atlantic Herring and Shark recipes are scattered among those for more familiar species. Copies of The Taste of Gloucester - 8th Edition, can be ordered through the Yankee Grocery Country Store.
