Providence & Rhode Island Cookbook

Big Recipes from the Smallest State

Book Description

Some attribute Rhode Islanders’ fascination with food to the state's ethnic mix: Italians who have an inherent love of food; French and Portuguese descendents, whose ancestral recipes are a part of the fabric of Rhode Island’s cuisine; and the Native Americans who were the first to use the bounty of the sea and land. In the second edition of The Providence & Rhode Island Cookbook, author Linda Beaulieu shares more recipes from talented chefs, family, and friends. With more than 200 recipes and engaging sidebars this book celebrates the dishes and culinary terms that are unique to Rhode Island.
