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.

The Big Bottom Biscuit

Michael Volpatt
Authors:
Michael Volpatt

In the heart of Sonoma wine country, Michael Volpatt, owner and founder of Big Bottom Market, has perfected a "wet" biscuit that is taking off. Pairing the biscuit with sweet and savory accompaniments, this biscuit is not your Southern grandmother's biscuit and not just served at breakfast. It is a classic Southern bread with a decidedly California twist.The Big Bottom Biscuit: Specialty Biscuits and Spreads from Sonoma's Big Bottom Market grows out of BBM's success serving and selling biscuits and shipping its biscuit mix and honey nationwide through a partnership with Zoe's meats. In 2016, the Big Bottom Market biscuit mix and honey was heralded as one of Oprah's Favorite Things, rocketing BBM's production into the stratosphere, and opening up avenues for BBM biscuits to appear on menus all over the country. Michael's passion for this simple food showcases its versatility in easy to prepare, accessible recipes, enhanced by Kelly Pulejo's stunning food and wine photography. From their super-popular "Egg in a Biscuit" and the aptly named "Sea Biscuit" with smoked salmon, crème fraiche, pickled onions, and capers to specialty sweet biscuits (Chocolate Bacon & Apple Pie) to a quiche whose crust is made from day-old biscuits, Volpatt's charming recipes will delight all tastes. The cookbook also includes butters, jams, and spreads, as well as savory embellishments. The voice is accessible and light, and this will appeal to Californians, Southerners, Yankees, and just about anyone who can't resist a piping-hot biscuit.

No One Cares About Crazy People

Ron Powers
Authors:
Ron Powers

"Extraordinary and courageous . . . No doubt if everyone were to read this book, the world would change."---New York Times Book ReviewNew York Times-bestselling author Ron Powers' critically acclaimed narrative of the social history of mental illness in America paired with the deeply personal story of his two sons' battles with schizophrenia.From the centuries of torture of "lunatiks" at Bedlam Asylum to the infamous eugenics era to the follies of the anti-psychiatry movement to the current landscape in which too many families struggle alone to manage afflicted love ones, Powers limns our fears and myths about mental illness and the fractured public policies that have resulted. Braided with that history is the moving story of Powers's beloved son Kevin--spirited, endearing, and gifted--who triumphed even while suffering from schizophrenia until finally he did not, and the story of his courageous surviving son Dean, who is also schizophrenic. A blend of history, biography, memoir, and current affairs ending with a consideration of where we might go from here, this is a thought-provoking look at a dreaded illness that has long been misunderstood.

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.
