Book Description

7 July 2005
Ripe apples, just-dug clams, sugary-sweet maple syrup, impeccable lobster. For decades, visitors have flocked to New England to enjoy the unique tastes of the harvest from land and sea and to witness the beauty of this breathtaking landscape. Likewise, millions have adored the prepared foods and condiments from Maine's Stonewall Kitchen, which perfectly capture the very best of this region's earthy but refined style of cooking.

Stonewall Kitchen Harves
t is a celebration of the ingredients and flavors that make modern New England cooking so seductive.

From the Garden offers recipes for the wide variety of crops that ripen at the height of summer. Enticing recipes include English Pea and Lettuce Soup with Chive Cream.

From the Sea showcases New England's world of seafood and shellfish. Recipes range from Trout with a Cornmeal Crust and Lemon Butter to the World's Best Fried Clams with Tartar Sauce.

From the Root Cellar celebrates the unsung world of root vegetables, showing how to transform them from plain to sulime. Dishes include Potato Galette Stuffed with Greens and Gruyér and Roast Chicken with Roasted Garlic-Herb Butter and Roasted Vegetables.

Fruits of the Earth captures the wonderfully simple flavors of local fresh fruit, from apples, pears, and berries to more unusual fruits like persimmons and pomegranates. Irresistible recipes include Blueberry-Lemon-Sour Cream Coffee Cake.

Illuminating ingredient sidebars and truly stunning photography—of flowering blueberry bushes, tiny eggplants, just-dug potatoes, and scores of finished dishes—bring the harvest theme to full bloom. Filled with beauty, style, and flavor, Stonewall Kitchen Harvest is the perfect way to taste New England's bounty.

The book was great and in good condition. I was a little concerned that it had a gift aid sticker on the back. Was it purchased from an commercial enterprise or a charity?

3.0 out of 5 stars Moderately interesting, but no porn for cooks 23 Jan 2008
By Anne
This afternoon I returned this book to Amazon, as I was quite disappointed when it had arrived. How on earth could this have happened? Because everything seemed to promise a highly needed addition to my cooking books library, when I read about this book, and decided to order it. The chapters are not in order of ingredient or type of dish, but rather of place of origin: "From the Garden," "From the Sea," "From the Root Cellar," "Fruits of the Earth," "Harvest Basics." Sounds great, doesn't it? Besides that, the book is all about using local and seasonal poduce. And OMG I would like to have a house with a root cellar. I was allready off with dreams of romantic photographs of rustic cellars with baskets full of stunning parsnips.

"From the Garden" offers recipes for crops that grow in summer (think English Pea and Lettuce Soup with Chive Cream), "From the Sea" needs no explanation, although it merely concentrates on New England's range of seafood and shellfish (American Fried Clams with Tartar Sauce); "From the Root Cellar" brings you recipes for root vegetables (Potato Galette Stuffed with Greens and Gruyére; Roast Chicken with Roasted Garlic-Herb Butter and Roasted Vegetables). "Fruits of the Earth" not only was said to bring recipes for dessert, but also for other dishes combined wuth fruits, such as apples, pears, and berries as well as more unusual fruits like persimmons and pomegranates. (Blueberry-Lemon-Sour Cream Coffee Cake)

Even as I am writing this down, I fear I made a mistake returning it, because it all sounds so enticing. But all I have to do is remember the book, that didn't seduce me in whatever way. Mind you, I'm an addict!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ooh-la-la 8 Dec 2004
By V. Jorgensen - Published on
Stonewall Kitchen Harvest is everything one wants in a new cookbook; lucious recipes and photos that lure the reader in. My first glimpse into the book elicited an "ooh, I want to try that" response. I was reminded that there is a small thrill in finding the freshest of ingrediants and this book celebrates those ingrediants with recipes that seem eminently do-able. Between Jim Stott and Jonathan King's stylish approach and Kathy's irresistable writing, they have produced a gorgeous cookbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not a great cook so this book helps 4 Dec 2005
By I. Keir - Published on
This was a gift from a friend. I'm not a wonderful cook but I like to try new recipes. I have made made several recipes from this book and each has been perfect - very tasty - and not too difficult. Recently some friends came over for dinner and I made one of the dishes, and my friend now wants to go out and get it too. Highest praise, I'd say.

5.0 out of 5 stars New England Traditions Worth Saving 17 April 2006
By Stephen M. Geneseo - Published on
This book presents an incredible array of possibilities for entertaining friends and family with easy to prepare dishes. It pulls together many New England classics from my favorite region. The approach is so simple and straight-forward, that even a kitchen-klutz like myself can muster an admirable presentation! The photos alone will make your stomach growl! It was a finalist in the IACP cookbook awards for 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooking Just Got Better 1 Dec 2004
By Lucullus - Published on
I live to cook. I love to eat. The Stonewall Kitchen Harvest cookbook is an inspiration for both. Call me a "foodie", but as they say, "Don't call me late." Cook your way through this user-friendly book and you're going to have a lot fun in the kitchen and meal-after-meal of really good food. I've been a fan of Stonewall's since discovering their jams a dozen or so years ago and when I saw the book, I thought it was just a collection of recipes using their products. Not. If their first book is this good, I'm going to order a used one. On second thought, I don't think I want a used cookbook. Eeeuu!
