The history, culture and flavor of the Adirondacks is captured in this unique cookbook featuring nearly 100 recipes from the mountains of New York. With the wild woods just outside their doors, the people of the Adirondack Mountains have always enjoyed the freshest of foods that could be hunted, gathered, or harvested. This cookbook offers nearly 100 modern recipes with a rustic twist, making use of the indigenous fish, game, fruits and vegetables of the Adirondacks. Featured recipes include Dandelion Salad, Campfire Trout, Maple-Glazed Root Vegetables, Maple Ice Cream, and Strawberry and Rhubarb Cobbler. Giving historical and cultural context to these and other dishes, authors Hallie Bond and Stephen Topper include fascinating stories and side notes as well as archival photographs from The Adirondack Museum.
