Yankee Magazine's New Recipe Collection
Dublin, NH (September 2, 2010) — Best New England Recipes, on newsstands October 5, 2010, includes more than 150 easy and delicious classic and contemporary dishes from 75 years of Yankee Magazine. Each recipe in its own way enhances a tradition of classic foods that have defined New England for generations. The recipes are inspired by the region’s distinct seasons, by the deep connection between farmers and chefs, and by the flavors of the diverse cultures that make New England a community.
“I hope this collection will serve as your gateway to both familiar comforts and new adventures in cooking and dining as you discover New England’s best recipes.” says Annie B. Copps, Yankee’s food editor and editor of the collection. “We’re proud to share these delicious selections, from our kitchen to yours.”
Throughout the history of the magazine, Yankee has always been committed to seasonal, local foods. Some of the earliest stories celebrated the harvest with root-vegetable recipes, late-summer blueberries, and all kinds of seafood, from shad roe to mussels. Maple syrup was a constant, as were brown bread, boiled dinners, and preserves. Today, those staples are still at the heart of New England cooking, and are joined by an array of fresh takes on old favorites, including salads and delicately flavored dressings, delectable cakes and cookies, boldly seasoned pastas, perfectly done roasts, innovative soups, and new grain recipes.
The bookazine includes recipes for appetizers, breads, soups and salads, main courses and pastas, side dishes, breakfasts, sweets, jams, and preserves. Here’s just a sampling: Deviled Oysters . . .
