New England is Delicious

Lifestyle editor Amy Traverso travels New England searching for the best food to share with Yankee's readers, then takes that inspiration into the kitchen. A Connecticut native, Amy calls New England "one of the most vibrant and innovative food scenes in the country. It has truly become a very delicious place to live." This September, W.W. Norton & Company will publish her book, The Apple Lover's Cookbook.
