Suggested Reading List


America's Founding Food: The Story of New England Cooking


Author: Keith Stavely, Kathleen Fitzgerald


Description: From baked beans to apple cider, from clam chowder to pumpkin pie, Keith Stavely and Kathleen Fitzgerald's culinary history reveals the complex and colorful origins of New England foods and cookery. Featuring hosts of stories and recipes derived from generations of New Englanders of diverse backgrounds, America's Founding Food chronicles the region's cuisine, from the English settlers' first encounter with Indian corn in the early seventeenth century to the nostalgic marketing of New England dishes in the first half of the twentieth century. Focusing on the traditional foods of the region--including beans, pumpkins, seafood, meats, baked goods, and beverages such as cider and rum--the authors show how New Englanders procured, preserved, and prepared their sustaining dishes. Placing the New England culinary experience in the broader context of British and American history and culture, Stavely and Fitzgerald demonstrate the importance of New England's foods to the formation of American identity, while dispelling some of the myths arising from patriotic sentiment. At once a sharp assessment and a savory recollection, America's Founding Food sets out the rich story of the American dinner table and provides a new way to appreciate American history.



Good Maine Food: Ancient and Mordern New England Food and Drink


Author: Marjorie Mosser


Description: Old recipes, like old friends, are usually most dependable, observes noted author Kenneth Roberts in his pithy introduction to this classic recipe compendium put together by his niece, Marjorie Mosser, in the 1930s. The long career of this bible of Maine cookery has proved him right. With Robert's outspoken commentaries sprinkled throughout, excerpts from some of his best-selling books, and maxims from Maine kitchens, this old favorite is a must-own collection for any modern cook. Down East Books is proud to present this revamped edition-with a brand new foreword by food historian Sandra Oliver-as part of the all-new Best Maine Food cookbook series.



Lake Champlain: A Natural History


Author: Mike Winslow


Description: An engaging introduction to Lake Champlain s varied physical and biological resources in short essays that offer enough detail to satisfy ecologists, but a prose style that anyone can enjoy. Six sections: The Setting; Forces; Phenomena; Living Lake: Plants; Living Lake: Animals; The Future of Lake Champlain. Copublished with The Lake Champlain Committee, a non-profit environmental organization based in Burlington VT, that has been working since 1963 to protect the lake's environmental integrity and recreational resources.
