Product Details
By: Mary Doughery

This one-of-a-kind cookbook is a locavore lovers’ collection of global recipes with a North Woods twist, a small-town heart, and a farm-to-table setting. Through recipes, stories, and photos, chef, mother, author, and foodie Mary Dougherty explores what is grown and raised in northern Wisconsin—in and around the Bayfield Peninsula and Apostle Islands—and learns to incorporate ingredients of the north into her family’s favorite dishes, discovering along the way what it means to nourish a family and a community.

This collection of globally and regionally inspired recipes featuring local cheeses, meats, and produce from the farmers in and around Bayfield—pho made with beef bones from a farm in Mellen, Indian meatballs with curry powder made in Washburn, chowder with corn and potatoes from a farm stand in Ashland. As she knits herself into the Bayfield community, Dougherty comes to more fully grasp the intricate relationship between food and community.

After a sailing trip to Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands, Mary Dougherty transplanted her family of seven (plus four dogs) to Bayfield. She opened and co-ran Good Thyme Restaurant, recognized as one of the top dining experiences in northern Wisconsin. She went on to create the Cookery Maven blog and Words for Water, a photography project about the importance of fresh water. She was voted Wisconsin’s 2016 Progressive Leader of the Year. You can find her most mornings at the beach with her dogs and most nights in her kitchen cooking.
