Full Moon Suppers at Salt Water Farm invites you to a series of magical, seasonal suppers where dear friends gather around the table to celebrate the bounty that the land and sea provide. This menu-driven cookbook offers twelve beautifully crafted meals derived from more than one hundred sold-out evening events at Salt Water Farm, the author’s cooking school in Maine. Even if you can’t make it to one of Annemarie’s monthly Full Moon Suppers, you can re-create them at home, beneath a full moon—or any night—for family and friends.
Each supper includes a portrait of the month: its climate, its rewards, and its ritual kitchen tasks—and a menu inspired by those characteristics. A Full Moon Supper is not only a celebration of the earth and its bounty but a reward for the hard work that goes into food production. These meals pay respect to the elements, the conditions of the earth, soil, and sea, and seasonal traditions as we round the lunar cycle.
