NEW ENGLAND CUISINE

Come to new england

try out Lobster

A New England lobster feast is no place for the shy or faint of heart. It takes work and skill to bust open the exoskeleton of the bright-orange, spiny beast, but the delicate taste of the lobster meat, dipped in drawn butter, is well worth the effort. The most popular variety in the United States is the Maine lobster. It has five pairs of legs; the first pair is large, heavy claws that contain a good amount of meat. The other meat-rich portion of the animal is its tail. Boiled lobster is served with a bib, drawn butter, a cracking tool, and a narrow fork for easing the meat out of the broken shell.

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

New England cooking is characterized by extensive use of seafood and dairy products, which results from its historical reliance on its seaports and fishing industry, as well as extensive dairy farming in states like Vermont. Three outstandingly characteristic ingredients native to New England are maple syrup, salt pork and cranberries.


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.
