Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This history of New England cooking from the colonial era to the end of the nineteenth century provides an interesting and informative analysis of the cooks and cookbooks of the era, as well as a collection of unmodified recipes showcasing the surprisingly complex cuisine of the region. Reacting to the common practice of altering recipes for contemporary tastes, the work attempts to provide a historical context for the development of New England cooking, and to give readers an unadulterated taste of these original American recipes. The first section of the work examines cooks and cookbooks of the era, offering biographical and historical information, and the second section provides recipes, in their original narrative form, for meat dishes, stews and chowders, and wide variety of sweet and savory pies. Stavely and Fitzgerald are New England librarians and the authors of a companion work, America's Founding Food: The Story of New England Cooking. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
