Aside from the inn's historical significance, what sets The Red Lion Inn dining experience apart from other inns is that the atmosphere has remained virtually unchanged! Guests can always expect to be welcomed by the inn's famous porch, elegant décor, and fabulous antiques. However, The Red Lion Inn’s cuisine has changed dramatically over the past five years, keeping in step with changing American tastes. The legendary Fitzpatrick family continues to raise this famous inn's cuisine to new heights -- blending new lighter and international fare with comfortable New England country meals. Author Suzi Forbes Chase worked closely with The Red Lion Inn staff to create easy-to-follow recipes for home use, using ingredients that are found in every kitchen.
Now, cooks of every ability are able to recreate the meals that draw them back to The Red Lion Inn time and time again – with the help of The New Red Lion Inn Cookbook!
This book is perfect for inn country enthusiasts, cookbook collectors, and aspiring gourmet chefs. This brand-new cookbook features 171 recipes, including many traditional New England favorites in addition to lighter, nouvelle cuisine. Packed with fascinating historical tidbits, The New Red Lion Inn Cookbook is also a pleasure to read.
