In a time where Mexican, Indian, Arab, Korean, and fusion food are all the rave (and I LOVE them all), finding a cookbook with contemporary dishes and old time favorites with simple, soft, and “kind” flavors is a breath of fresh air. This does not mean that the recipes are boring or tasteless, all the opposite, they are full of fresh, vibrant, interesting and delicious flavors. And yes, New England also has the influence of many cultures and cuisines from the people from around the world that has called home that part of the Northeast, and you will see that on some recipes.
The book took 5 years to be completed and Mrs. Chase searched through many community cookbooks, old recipes, family and friend’s kitchen and her own twist on local food. The collection of recipes is so interesting you will find a dish for every time, season, celebration or holiday, all New England style and all delicious.
My only complaint? As with so many cookbooks, you don’t get a list of recipes on each chapter so if you want to find a specific soup you made some days ago, you better remember the page or some of the ingredients to search on the Index or worst, the name of the soup, which I never memorize, and again you have to go to the Index to find it. This fashion of no recipe list has to come to an end and soon, please!
It will be a tedious effort to bookmark recipes.
I used it exclusively for a recent event, and the roasted olives (pictured) made me an instant genius.
I have never cooked a lobster (& may not still) but just reading about how SLC does it makes me want to dive in. There is not a doubt in my mind that I'll make her cranberry compote at Thanksgiving this year - if not earlier to go with one of her roast pork recipes. She also gives sources for many of the ingredients she uses which is a great help.
Highly recommend this book as the best of a very good lot!
