The Inn Cook Book New England by Igor & Marjorie Kropotkin - 1983 Edition
For us, staying at an inn is much like spending a weekend in the country with a favorite aunt who happens to be a splendid cook... (from the introduction)
When writers and seasoned travelers Igor and Marjorie Kropotkin set out to write a book about New England inns and overnight stays, they were interested in creating a factual travel guide rating hotel accommodations along the east Coast from Maine to Connecticut. There were already dozens of books that did that. Instead, they were interested in creating a guide of unique New England lodgings as experienced through their food - the key component that can change an overnight stay from good to great, fine to fabulous. In 1983, they published The Inn Cook Book New England, featuring 50 inns and over 300 pages worth of recipes. These recipes were the stalwart favorites, the proven winners, of guests, staff, and chefs that caused vacationers to return again and again to the quaint landscape of each picturesque state.
Recipes include both traditional American and European fare, and many represent heritage dishes brought from other countries by the inn chefs and cooks themselves. Fun for travelers, adventurous cooks, and anyone interested in creating cozy kitchen meals during the Fall and Winter months, this cookbook promises to add a touch of New England to your table
Not all of the inns featured here are still in business, but some still are which makes this book a time capsule of vintage travel stays as well as an inspirational guidebook for your next vacation.
