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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Unlike The Stonewall Kitchen Cookbook, King and Jim Stott's second cookbook does not feature their delicious line of preserves and condiments. With food writer Kathy Gunst, the authors offer 125 seasonal recipes, grouped into four categories: "From the Garden," "From the Sea," "From the Root Cellar," and "Fruits of the Earth." Some recipes feature meat or poultry, but with the bounty of the Maine seacoast at hand, the authors favor fish and shellfish. The book is attractive, with full-color photographs throughout, and the recipes are appealing enough, but seasonal cookbooks abound, including The Arrows Cookbook, which showcases the imaginative, refined food served at that renowned Maine restaurant.

Take 125 delicious recipes; mix breezy directions with fresh, lick-the-page photographs and place on a bed of smooth, coated paper. Serve between slick covers and you will have a most wonderful new cookbook. The new Stonewall Kitchen Harvest cookbook is more than a cookbook, it¿s a terrific read. I first got to know Stonewall Kitchen when I discovered their Maine Blueberry Jam. When I saw the book, I thought it would make a good house warming present and it proved to be a hit. In addition to the many recipes it¿s jam-packed (pun intended) with juicy tidbits about food. If I can find stockings big enough, I know what Santa gonna bring my friends this year.
