Home at Sea: Recipes from a Maine Windjammer


Jacob Dean

Jacob Dean is a food and travel writer and psychologist based in New York.

Chef Annie Mahle is the co-captain and culinary tour de force behind the J&E Riggin, a historic schooner running off the coast of Maine. The Riggin offers a variety of multi-day cruises which we highly recommend, and this is in large part due to Chef Annie’s inventive and deeply satisfying cooking, which she makes below deck on a large, antique wood-fired iron stove. Chef Annie has also written three books detailing both her time-tested recipes and aspects of life above and below deck. For those of us not lucky enough to be able to secure a space on the ship itself, this is a glimpse into a life of wind, waves, and incredible cooking. All three books – Sugar & Salt, the Blue BookSugar & Salt, the Orange Book and At Home, At Sea are available for purchase online. At Home, At Sea is currently in its second printing and is a perfect place to start.
