I cook and bake as a hobby. Food is my love-language, and I collect cookbooks of all kinds. I was very excited to check this one out.

This is a big, beautifully done book. There are 300 recipies, stunning photos, and a good deal of informative writing included. You may or may not like the addition of the writing. I do, so that's a plus for me. I'm a really visual person so the pictures and stories included paint a visual that elevates a cookbook. The author clearly knows her subject matter and it shows. There is a wide variety covered from drinks to salads, soups to clam bakes.

I did struggle with many of the recipies (for my taste) being overly complicated. When a recipe starts by telling me to get a good nights sleep, and lists a wheelbarrow and cinder blocks needed...well, you've probably lost me. I consider myself a decent cook. I cook from scratch, source from local farms, etc., but others certainly may feel differently. Not all recipes are as involved, but enough that I can't give this higher then three stars.

I received this cookbook from a goodreads.com giveaway, however all opinions and comments are my own. ( )

“I’ve adored Sarah Chase’s cookbooks for decades! This is exactly what you want to cook at home—delicious, satisfying, earthy food your friends and family will love.”
Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa Cookbooks and Television

From a born-and-bred New Englander comes a book that sings with all the flavors and textures of the beloved region. Sarah Leah Chase is a caterer, cooking teacher, and prolific writer whose books—including The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook (as coauthor) and Nantucket Open-House Cookbook—have over 3.4 million copies in print. For New England Open-House Cookbook, she draws from her memories of growing up in Connecticut and Maine; her experience living and cooking on Cape Cod; and her extensive travels meeting farmers, fishermen, and chefs. The result is a wide-ranging cookbook for everyone who has skied the mountains of Vermont, sailed off the coast of Maine, dug for clams on Cape Cod, or just wishes they had. It reflects the bountiful ingredients and recipes of New England, served up in evocative prose, gorgeous full-color photographs, and 300 delicious recipes.

All of New England’s classic dishes are represented, including a wealth of shellfish soups and stews and a full chapter celebrating lobster. From breakfast (Debbie’s Blue Ribbon Maine Muffins) to delightful appetizers and nibbles (Tiny Tumbled Tomatoes, Oysters “Clark Rockefeller”) to mains for every season and occasion: Baked Bluefish with New Potatoes and Summer Rib Eyes with Rosemary, Lemon, and Garlic. Plus: perfect picnic recipes, farmstand sides, and luscious desserts.
