Connecticut is one of the oldest states in the union, and is thus a cultural and culinary time capsule of American life. Much more than a cookbook, here is a celebration of the traditions and tastes of New England. Dozens of chefs, farmers, and fishermen from across the state share their most beloved recipes using only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients.
Food writers Tracy Medeiros and Christy Colasurdo travel the roads of Connecticut to discover and share dynamic New American and New England fare. Visiting family farms, roadside vegetable stands, lobster shacks, and high-end restaurants, they compile a collection of more than 150 delicious and inspired recipes that capture the unique spirit of the Nutmeg State.
This groundbreaking cookbook takes readers on a journey from farm to kitchen, and opens a window into the world of Connecticut's local agricultural and chef profiles, regional lore, and stunning photographs.
With its lush farmland and passionate communities, Connecticut is one of the centers of the farm-to-table movement sweeping the nation. Across this beautiful state, diners can enjoy juicy seasonal tomatoes, feast on sustainably harvested seafood, sample artisanal cheeses, and drink microbrewed beers crafted with locally produced ingredients.Details: By Tracey Medeiros & Christy Colasurdo
