New England Cookbooks
A quick search through the Home Cooking archives revealed Time-Life's Foods of the World: New England to be the strongly only recommended book for New England cooking. So, does anyone have any suggestions for other New England cookbooks? Most I've found online feature a mix of reviews, with the negatives being pretty damning.
When we were on holiday in New England last year, we bought the "Best of the Best from New England", as a souvenir. There's a series of these and we've previously bought them on past trips to America.
There's a good range of recipes as with the other books but, in truth, there's an air of the old-fashioned about many of them. Not old-fashioned as in heritage or traditional recipes of the region, just old-fashioned as in the sort of food we ate in the 1970/80s. I suppose that's inevitable with this sort of compilation book - first published in 1994, it draws on recipes form other cookbooks, obviously older.
Two more localized cookbooks:
For Rhode Island (a tiny state with an outsized number of local foodways):
For Maine (where local food has taken root very deeply):
