The Connection Cookbooks make up a culinary adventure series that begins with sugaring in the spring, continues through berry picking in the summer, and culminates with cranberries and apples in the fall.
Each book is lavishly illustrated with hand drawings, and the recipes are written in ink as if they were penned by a mother to be handed down, to her daughter. Scattered throughout the books are homilies and facts about the food item that is the topic of the book.
