Book Description

4 April 2014
Diners were born in New England (Rhode Island, to be exact), and they have a long and colorful history as local eateries of distinction because of both their menus and their buildings. Though many diners have gone by the wayside in the past half century, there are still plenty around, and each has at least a dish or two for which they re best known and that keep customers coming back year after year. The New England Diner Cookbook celebrates every facet of these diamonds in the rough. Along with diners that have perfected the tried-and-true items like corned beef hash, clam chowder, and malted milkshakes, many have developed relatively sophisticated menus that include distinctly New England delicacies like Lobster Chow Mein, Butterscotch Indian Pudding, and Portobello Mushroom Fries."

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic recipes and more for diner lovers 20 Mar 2014
By egtu - Published on
Mike Urban's 3rd New England food book departs slightly from the style of his earlier books (Clam Shacks: The Ultimate Guide and Trip Planner to New England's Most Fantastic Seafood Eateries and Lobster Shacks: A Road Guide to New England's Best Lobster Joints) in that The New England Diner Cookbook is cookbook first and travelogue second; the earlier books focused more on the histories and descriptions of seafood establishments and their owners.

Happily The NE Diner Cookbook hasn't abandoned the human interest angle to food that Urban is so good at delivering with affection and aplomb. It's always nice to know a little something about those whose food you eat.

And what food it is! Diner lovers are well acquainted with the comfort and accessibility of the standard fare good diners are smart enough to provide, and The NE Diner Cookbook serves up the best and most ubiquitous of these recipes within its pages. But many diners now also include some innovative and unusual dishes on their menus--still comfort, still accessible, but food with a twist. The NE Diner Cookbook offers the same originality, including recipes like Lobster Chow Mein; Sweet and Spicy Steak Tacos with Chimichurri Sauce; and Butternut Squash Soup with Maple Creme Fraiche, Blue Cheese, and Cranberry among its offerings.

The recipes are for the most part uncomplicated and don't require huge expenditures of time, money, or effort. Try as many as you can and experience the fun of eating at a favorite diner--only at home.
5.0 out of 5 stars On the Road or at Home 31 Mar 2014
By nhs - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book makes you want to get up early and go somewhere for a great breakfast--and maybe that somewhere is your own kitchen. Urban brings the warm, quirky charm of a friendly diner to his collection of profiles of New England landmarks and their recipes.

The photos let you know what awaits on the road or at home--fresh doughnuts, stuffed French toast, fritters and hash, and all those wonderful pies.The fare is accessible but not predictable--along with the classics there are tributes to ethnic connections like Greek roast lamb and gourmet updates like gingerbread with zabaglione.

The histories of some two dozen diners are engaging and inspiring. So much hard work, so many risks taken--it makes you hungry for the chowders and pot pies, meat loaves and puddings saved here for posterity.
