Nantucket-based cookbook author and food columnist Chase (Nantucket Open-House Cookbook) once again puts New England fare on the front burner with this 300-recipe collection inspired by fellow chefs, friends, and family members. Recipes reflect the seasons of New England, featuring a wealth of regional products and lauding Chase’s favorite eateries. Native fare includes plenty of dishes featuring maple, blueberries, and pumpkin, as well as farmstand and coastal seafood favorites. The book’s sections include appetizers, chicken, and baked goods. An entire chapter is dedicated to lobster, and there’s an abundance of classic chowders, soups, and stews. For a little bivalve bliss, there are Sal’s stuffed quahogs and mussels with fennel and tomatoes. A chapter on meat mains includes broiled lamb shoulder chops with cranberry and a peperonata. Maple and pear muffins with a walnut streusel, and a Vermont breakfast puff of bacon and cheddar, welcome the New England morning. Chock-full of eloquent essays and across-the-fence anecdotes, these uncomplicated recipes are rugged regional classics with original accents designed to deliver home-cooked comfort. (June)
