Format: Paperback
A fun book to read and it lists places to go for their specialties in Connecticut.
My one quibble is on page 58 where they describe how to eat a raw oyster on the shell. "Let it slip whole into your throat and swallow it whole" is a waste of an oyster. You need to chew the oyster to truly enjoy its mixture of subtle flavors and textures.

I found this book to be a great combination of history, recipes and travel guide. I am ready to get in my car and go try any of the places still open. Very interesting and an easy read.

Enjoyable book, lots of history of Connecticut! Authors could have used another source for 18th century foods besides books...by interviewing some of the hundreds of Colonial-era reenactors in our state. Authors are from Fairfield county so most of the history is concentrated along the shore and southern Connecticut. How in the small world of Connecticut foods did they miss Shady Glen in Manchester?!
