The best-seller reissued with updated cover and design!
Brooke Dojny picks up all the strands of culinary influence begun at Plymouth, Massachusetts, in America’s original Thanksgiving feast, and shows how the region’s cuisine has evolved in this 350-recipe portrait of the way New Englanders cook today. Wellfleet Oysters-on-the-Half-Shell and Pumpkin-Cider Soup are recipes that joy in the goodness of fresh produce and the sea’s abundance. Cheddar and Ale Potage de Vermont and Shaker Roast Pork Loin with Cider-Sage Gravy offer hearty antidotes to winter’s chill, and Simple Grilled Dilled Striped Bass and Blackberry Patch Cobbled Cobbler revel in New England’s fleeting summer.
The New England Cookbook features many recipes brought by immigrants into the region’s mainstream fare, as well as flavorful combinations of healthful ingredients New Englanders love. The people, culture, and lore of the area spring to life in plentiful sidebars.
For all its modernity, The New England Cookbook will surely inspire readers to keep one tradition alive, that of setting aside life’s work for a time and gathering with family and friends around a table to enjoy all the delectable, heart-warming food these recipes have to offer.
