Whether it's grilled corn on the patio or a hot bowl of soup by the fire, the foods we eat are often intimately connected to the seasons of the year. For twenty years, award-winning food writer and historian Peter G. Rose has written a column on family food for newspapers in the Hudson Valley, and this light-hearted cookbook includes some of her most popular recipes. Drawing on the rich historical and culinary legacy of the Hudson Valley, Rose offers simple, easy-to-make recipes for patio, boat, cabin, or RV in the summer, and for enjoying by the fireside in the winter. Along the way she offers tidbits of food history, ideas for entertaining, and suggestions for using local ingredients. Informative and tasty, these recipes showcase the Hudson Valley as both a culinary and historic destination.
