New Book: The Coastal Table Cookbook
February 3, 2015
In “The Coastal Table,” food writer and cooking instructor Karen Covey highlights Southern New England’s epicurean heritage with a fresh, simple twist on traditional fare. Taking cues from the region’s culinary history and agriculture, the cookbook features recipes for casual beach days, sophisticated outdoor entertaining, and simple, everyday meals.
“For someone who loves food, there might not be a more exciting place to live [than Southern New England],” says Covey. “Food isn’t just an industry to the people here—it truly is a way of life. These folks take what they do very seriously, and they’re guided by their passion to grow and to make the very best food and wine possible.”
Covey’s recipes are built around local, seasonal ingredients. The book also features contributions by New England’s finest chefs, such as Barbara Lynch of Barbara Lynch Gruppo (Boston), Matt Jennings of Townsman (Boston), and Champe Speidel of Persimmon (Bristol, RI), who rely on the region’s quality produce, seafood, and meat when crafting their menus.
