New England Home Cooking
Menu and Recipe Ideas
England Cooking is a type of American cuisine found in New
England, in the northeastern region of the United States. New
England cooking is characterized by extensive use of seafood and
dairy products, which results from its historical reliance on its
seaports and fishing industry, as well as extensive dairy farming
in inland regions.
Two prominent characteristic foodstuffs native to New England
are maple syrup and cranberries. The standard starch is potato. Parsley and sage are common, with a few Caribbean additions like
nutmeg. Due to the reliance on dairy, creams are standard. The
favored cooking techniques are stewing and baking.
