September Cookbook Club

Cookbook Club is back! For September, we have selected two different cookbooks to choose from with amazing recipes and ideas on how to use local New England food.

New England Open House Cookbook by Sarah Leah Chase. From a born-and-bred New Englander comes a book that sings with all the flavors and textures of the beloved region. Sarah Leah Chase is a caterer, cooking teacher, and prolific writer whose books have over 3.4 million copies in print. For New England Open-House Cookbook, she draws from her memories of growing up in Connecticut and Maine; her experience living and cooking on Cape Cod; and her extensive travels meeting farmers, fishermen, and chefs. The result is a wide-ranging cookbook for everyone who has skied the mountains of Vermont, sailed off the coast of Maine, dug for clams on Cape Cod, or just wishes they had. It reflects the bountiful ingredients and recipes of New England, served up in evocative prose, gorgeous full-color photographs, and 300 delicious recipes. –publisher

The New England Orchard Cookbook: Harvesting Dishes & Desserts from the Region’s Bounty by Linda Beaulieu is a classic regional cookbook filled with recipes from iconic orchards and cider mills throughout New England. Many of the featured farms grow more than just the beloved apple pears, peaches, berries, and more and over 200 recipes included in this book reflect that bounty. From sweet desserts to savory dinners, the recipes in The New England Orchard Cookbook are designed for the home cook and pay homage to the abundance of the local farm. Throughout are features about life and work at the orchards alongside gorgeous photography.publisher.
