Description: The inns that have dotted the post roads and byways of New England for over two hundred years have been justly celebrated for for their hospitality and hearty, substantial food. In the past few years that tradition has been enriched with the addition of various international cuisines.
Igor and Marjorie Kropotkin, inveterate inn-goers, have coaxed the chefs and owners of fifty favorite inns into relinquishing the recipes for their particular specialities. The result is a delightful, different, and eminently useful cook book composed of 250 recipes ranging from Yankee pot roast to crabmeat quiche to wild blueberry cheesecake. A complete cook book, it includes Appetizers and Hors d'oeuvres; Soups and Chowders; Salads and Salad Dressings; Seafoods; Meats; Poultry; Eggs and Cheese; Vegetables; Breads; Grains, Pasta, and Legumes; Pies, Cakes, Cookies, and Bars; and Desserts. Whenever necessary, the recipes have been adapted for home preparation and rechecked with the original creators.
As a bonus, The Inn Cook Book serves as a discerning travel guide. Each contributing inn is fondly described, with road directions, recreation facilities, nearby attractions, and lodging availability.
When not touring New England inns, the Kropotkins relish the good life in New Jersey. Mr. Kropotkin runs Scribner's Book Stores and is President Emeritus of the American Booksellers Association.
