Bass Pond Press

Publisher of regional cookbooks which celebrates the foods of the Commonwealth, Cape Cod, and New England.

In 2003, three women got together and decided to publish a cookbook, the Taste and Tales of Massachusetts. Together they covered the three essentials necessary in putting together a book – design, content, and graphic.  The book was published in 2004 and is now in its seventh printing.

Louise Minks is  a wonderful artist and four of her paintings grace the covers of our cookbooks. The tidewater scene on the Massachusetts book; Edgartown lighthouse on Cape Cod and Islands; Bass Harbor Lighthouse on Mt. Desert, Maine on Coastal New England and a Catskill scene for New York.

The next book was on cranberries, then Cape Cod and the tale goes on. My latest cookbook is the Taste & Tales of our National Parks East.

Having been a history/political science major in college, my books give me the opportunity to bring together my love of history and food.  As a friend said, “The books are a great read even if you are not hungry.”
