Sense of Place: The Food of New England

Sense of Place: The Food of New England

After sharing all our favorite flavors of New England, we couldn't leave you without a few recipes to tempt your taste buds!

Whether you live in Boston or Santa Fe, a transplant from a different coast or a native yearning for home, these dishes will land you smack dab in the bays and rocky hillsides of New England.

New Englanders take advantage of what they have while it's in season, preparing them in simple ways to show off their best flavors. This applies to everything from strawberries to lobster!

Red Flannel Hash (Beet and Pototo Hash--great with a fried egg on top!)
Johnny Cakes (which are from Rhode Island and don't let anyone tell you otherwise)
Old-Fashioned Indian Corn Pudding
Everything with a big helping of maple syrup, of course...

Potato and Celery Root Gratin with Smoked Haddock (Finnan Haddie)
New England Fish Chowder
New England Clam Chowder
Lobster Pot Pie
Lobster Rolls (the recipe says to serve on dinner rolls, but they're really best on hoagie or hot dog buns!)
Backyard New England Clam Bake (sandy beach encouraged, but not required)

Fruit Cobbler (baked in an oven)
Blueberry Grunt (covered and cooked on the stovetop)
Boston Cream Pie

Anadama Bread
Boston Brown Bread
Cranberry Relish with Apple Cider

What other dishes would you add to this list?
