The Vermont Country Store Cookbook

Recipes, History and Lore from the Classic American General Store

By Ellen Ecker Ogden

  • Hardback
  • £22.99

The ultimate New England store, whose catalog reaches millions of people, has written a comforting cookbook bringing us back to simpler days.

The Vermont Country Store Cookbook captures both the essence of the iconic store and the soul of the Vermont way of life: a self-reliant, rich life in the slow lane. Through recipes, yarns, archival photos, and sumptuous visuals, it tells the story of five generations of Orton storekeepers, while featuring fresh-from-the-farm cooking that imbues the cuisine of the present with the best of the past. Approximately 120 updated and original family recipes evoke memories, conveying all the hominess of the catalogue, but also appeal to the modern tastes of contemporary cooks. The book also features sidebars of Vermont history and more than 200 photographs, both black-and-white archival and four-color photographs, the latter taken especially for the book.

Cathy Barrow
Authors:
Cathy Barrow

For those of you who aren't up on your Pinterest food trends, slab pie is just like regular pie-only better (and bigger)! Instead of crimping and meticulously rolling out a round crust, slab pies are an unfussy twist that are perfect for a potluck or dinner party or just a family dinner. Baked on sheet pans, slab pies can easily serve a crowd of people dinner or dessert. PIE SQUARED includes seventy-five foolproof recipes, along with inventive decoration tips that will appeal to baking nerds and occasional bakers alike. And this fresh, uncomplicated take on pie will surely pique the interest of those who have previously been reluctant to take out their rolling pin.Barrow didn't invent slab pie, but she definitely thinks outside of the crust. In addition to traditional pie dough, she offers more than a dozen crust recipes-from cracker crusts and cornbread crusts to cookie crusts and cheddar cheese crusts. Using these as a base, Barrow then entices readers with both savory and sweet slab pie creations, with recipes like Spinach, Gorgonzola, and Walnut Slab Pie and Curried Chicken Slab Pie to Sour Cream Peach Melba Slab Pie and Grande Mocha Cappuccino Slab Pie. The first book of its kind, this will appeal to lovers of easy food trends like sheet pan suppers and dump cakes. Don't be surprised when you start spying slab pies at your next potluck!

Deep Run Roots

Vivian Howard
Authors:
Vivian Howard

Filled with the stories, traditions, ingredients, and recipes that define and celebrate the South, Deep Run Roots is the definitive record of modern Southern food through Vivian Howard's eyes. It weaves the story of her life through twenty-five chapters on the ingredients that make the food of Eastern North Carolina--and all of the South--so special, and shares more than 225 classic and contemporary recipes along the way. There is a dish in every chapter for cooks of every level of skill and interest. With tradition as the starting point, the recipes grow in complexity from simple things to make on a weeknight to more elaborate dishes served at Vivian's restaurants. In the summer, when her walk-in is flooded with blueberries, she makes Blueberry BBQ Chicken, Crispy Corn Cakes with Blueberry Corn Salsa, and Buttermilk Blueberry Sherbet. In the winter, when crates of turnips overrun the restaurant, she makes Seared Sea Scallops, Turnip and Butternut Agrodolce, Cider Braised Pork Shank with Roast Turnip Gremolata, and Potlikker Soup and Sweet Potato Cream. This book is Vivian's love letter to the South, preserving and reinterpreting the traditional foodways of her home.

Asian-American

Dale Talde
Authors:
Dale Talde

Born in Chicago to Filipino parents, Dale Talde grew up both steeped in his family's culinary heritage and infatuated with American fast food. Today, his dual identity is etched on the menu at Talde, where he reimages iconic Asian dishes, imbuing them with Americana while doubling-down on the culinary fireworks that made them so popular in the first place. His riff on pad thai features bacon and oysters. He gives juicy pork dumplings the salty, springy exterior of soft pretzels. His food isn't Asian fusion; it's Asian-American. Now, in his first cookbook, Dale shares the recipes that have made him famous, all told in his inimitable voice. Some chefs cook food meant to transport you to Northern Thailand or Sichuan province. Dale's food reminds us that we're home.
