New England is a northeasterly region of the U.S. comprising the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. It's known for its Colonial past, long Atlantic coastline, changing autumn foliage and forested mountains. Boston, Massachusetts, the region’s hub, pre-dates the American Revolution, and its Freedom Trail passes sites that were critical to the nation’s founding.
Food from each states
The Mediterranean herbs are not hardy in much of New England away from the coast: parsley and sage are New England herbs, with a few Caribbean additions like nutmeg. The favored cooking techniques are stewing and baking.
Rhode Island is known for quahog clams, johnny cakes, coffee milk, and pizza strips.
Even today, traditional cuisine remains a strong part of New England's identity. Some of its plates are now enjoyed by the entire United States, including clam chowder, baked beans, and homemade ice cream.
In the past two centuries, New England cooking was strongly influenced and transformed by Irish Americans, the Portuguese fishermen of coastal New England, and Italian Americans.
Currently, the oldest operating restaurant in the United States, the Union Oyster House, is located in Boston, Massachusetts.
