'K. New England? So much great stuff. The cradle of American cookery, it is not. Puritan recipes generally go like this:
1. Is it food? If yes, move to #2. 2. Boil it. 3. Yes, lettuce is food.
But, as ever in this particular cookbook, a fantastic job on that line drawing! Look at all those details on this couple going to a fancy dress party as Pilgrims. Bless them, they've even got buckle shoes and a buckle hat!
