The Vermont Country Store Cookbook
By Ellen Ecker Ogden
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.

Finally, a collection of recipes that provides guilt-free comfort-food indulgence for vegans everywhere. With 125 recipes and more than 30 food photos, author Julie Hasson aims to introduce plant-based diner fare both savoury and sweet. This new vegan classic covers breakfast, lunch, and supper from the diner-gone-vegan! From pancakes, waffles, and luscious muffins to scrambles, faux Benedicts, and homemade sausage, this vegan cookbook has breakfast sizzling. Traditional lunches get a healthy new lease through clubs, open-faced sandwiches, soups, and pastas. Even filling casseroles, comforting Mac-and-Cheese, and slow-cooked stews are deliciously reinterpreted, followed by desserts ranging from shakes to creamy cheesecakes.
