Saltwater Foodways is the definitive history of New England's seacoast and seafaring food, and the evolution of Yankee foodways throughout the 19th century. Its 16 extensively illustrated chapters consider the food traditions of New England coastal people, of cooks aboard fishing and deepwater vessels, and the celebration of Christmas, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July and the fruits of summer. Each chapter is followed by historic recipes, 185 in all, interpreted for the modern cook. Winner of the 1996 Julia Child Cookbook Award for distinguished culinary scholarship.
