The Vermont Country Store Cookbook features delicious recipes, gorgeous full color food and landscape photos, woven together with stories about the origins and success story of The Vermont Country Store, a legendary store in Weston, Vermont.
Writing this book, with my co-author, Andrea Diehl, was an opportunity to go through archival recipes from the Orton family, and recreate classic dishes such as Coffee Can Brown Bread, Maple Bon-Bons, Watermelon Pickles, and Vermont Blueberry Pie.
This book will quickly become a treasured favorite for yourself, or cookbook loving friend. Hardcover, full color photos, 120 original recipes. 299 pages. I’d be happy to autograph it for you!
The Vermont Country Store Cookbook is the first full-sized cookbook produced by The Vermont Country Store in collaboration with co-authors Ellen Ecker Ogden and Andrea Diehl. Featuring classic, original recipes, based on archival family history, woven with tales of Vermont lore, you will enjoy both cooking and reading this new cookbook, published September 2015 with Grand Central Publishing.
From the introduction of The Vermont Country Store Cookbook:
” Imagine a place that captures all the nostalgia, charm and happy memories of your childhood. Walk into The Vermont Country Store in Weston, Vermont, and you realize such a place exists.
Open the door and a storekeeper’s bell jingles to announce your arrival. The first thing you encounter, at child’s eye level, are 55 glass canisters heaped with penny candy: salt water taffy, licorice whips, fireballs, and Mary Jane’s, watermelon fruit slices, Smarties, wax bottles and tootsie rolls. You see hand-dipped chocolates by the pound, and all your favorite candy bars: Mallowbars, Twin Bings and Valomilk. You are now happy: You are home.
Many doors open into The Vermont Country Store, and not everyone who visits starts with the candy. But nearly everyone who visits experiences a Proustian moment, some taste or scent or texture that powers them into the past.”
