The Mystic Seaport cookbook: 350 years of New England cooking

Kirkus Reviews Even tot those purists who dislike regional rhapsodies adorning the bare bones of instructions, this experienced author redeems herself with respectable interesting recipes–here traditional New England seacoast dishes which use wholesome, generally obtainable ingredients (although one inevitably mourns the passing of backyard vegetables and wild blueberries). Except for salads, which have somehow always flummoxed this region (New Englanders tend to glue things together with jello), each section offers major triumphs–the mighty chowders, breads, boiled dinners, seafood, the British-flavored desserts, the relishes. Good, basic New England cookery with glossary and historical notes.
