Rhode Island Recipes
Creative, healthy cooking with iconic local foods
Other primary creator
What happens when two food bloggers get into the kitchen with some favorite culinary souvenirs from their home state? They whip up a cookbook, of course!
RHODE ISLAND RECIPES: CREATIVE, HEALTHY COOKING WITH ICONIC LOCAL FOODS includes family-friendly dishes -- appetizers, mains, sides and, yes, a few desserts -- that feature products from 17 Rhode Island companies.
You've seen these iconic food products everywhere if you live in or visit The Ocean State. From grocery stores to gift shops, from the airport to the Internet, our local foods celebrate the best of Rhode Island. Del's Lemonade, Kenyon's Corn Meal, Dave's Coffee Syrup and all things Wicked Natural -- in this book, you'll find fun new ways to use the sauces, condiments and mixes we love so much that we stock them in our own pantries.
We searched our state from end to end, visiting shops, farm stands and farmers markets to find the best culinary souvenirs. We tested and tasted, and chose the products with no influence from any of the companies. Then we headed to the kitchen to explore new ways to combine our finds with fresh, local ingredients.
The end result? A cookbook that brings the best of the best products out of the gift shop and into your kitchen, in healthy, creative recipes that are easy for any home cook. Each recipe is illustrated with a droolworthy full-color photograph.
Some of our favorites (we think they'll become your favorites, too) include:
* "Buddy" Lasagne
* Baked Clam and Corn Fritters
* Weiner Spice Meatball Whole Wheat Pizza
* Coffee Syrup Pulled Pork
* Brussels and Broccoli With Maple Mustard Vinaigrette
* Smoky Spicy Cole Slaw
* Lemon Cake with Lemon(ade) Glaze
* Rhode Island Hot Chocolate
The 30 original recipes feature whole grains, low-fat ingredients, and fresh produce. All recipes are labeled for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free dietary preferences.
The recipes can be made using substitutions, though we hope you'll visit Rhode Island or order these iconic food products online. The book tells you more about each of the companies, and gives information about where to order (many of the products available right here on Amazon.com).
If your most-loved cookbooks wear their food splatters like a badge of honor, you'll want to have RHODE ISLAND RECIPES in the softcover edition. It's sure to become one of your favorites.
