THE COASTAL TABLE

RECIPES INSPIRED BY THE FARMLANDS AND SEASIDE OF SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND

When Karen Covey moved to the South Coast of Massachusetts, she found an exceptional community of farmers, winemakers, chefs, cheesemakers, and fishermen thriving upon the region’s unique coastal geography, quietly producing some of the best food in the Northeast. Until recently, though, few outside the culinary world have discovered the breadth and caliber of ingredients available from the coastline of Southern New England—that’s about to change.

CRAFTY BASTARDS BEER IN NEW ENGLAND FROM THE MAYFLOWER TO MODERN DAY

The region that defined Yankee ingenuity has a beer heritage in keeping with its character. Brewing in New England goes back four centuries, beginning with the Pilgrims who dropped anchor in Plymouth because their supply of beer was running low. (They survived the winter, planted a crop of barley, and promptly brewed the first Thanksgiving ale.)

Making beer in New England hasn’t always been easy. Puritan housewives, industrial era beer moguls, and contemporary craft brewers alike have concocted humankind’s oldest beverage in the face of scarce ingredients, legal hurdles, and public indifference. But despite these challenges, beer has always been and remains a staple of New England life—at no time more than the present. New Englanders have an unquenchable thirst for the good stuff and New England microbreweries are multiplying like yeast cells in a batch of fermenting ale. With Crafty Bastards: Brewing in New England from the Mayflower to Modern Day, former bartender, master brewer, and drinks journalist Lauren Clark deepens our appreciation for beer and the challenges inherent in creating the perfect pint. Giving voice to the inimitable Yankee spirit that allows New Englanders to faithfully produce some of best beers in the nation, Clark invites readers to take a giant swig of brewing past and present.


LAUREN CLARK is a freelance journalist and former bartender and brewer. her articles have appeared in the new york times, the boston globe, the boston herald, jane, and yankee magazine, among other publications. clark is also the founder of drinkboston. com, which was featured in several boston newspapers and magazines, the massachusetts beverage business journal, vintage spirits

DRINKING BOSTON A HISTORY OF THE CITY AND ITS SPIRITS

From the camaraderie of the Colonial taverns to the saloons of the turn of the century; from Prohibition—a period rife with class politics, social reform, and opportunism—to a trail of nightclub neon so bright, it was called the “Conga Belt,” Drinking Boston pays tribute to the fascinating role alcohol has played throughout the city’s history

Teasing out this curious relationship—in particular, the clash between a constrained Puritanism (lingering like a hangover today) and a raucous revolutionary spirit—Drinking Boston introduces the cast of characters who championed or vilified drinking and the places where they gathered, legally or otherwise. Visiting some of Boston’s most storied neighborhood bars, this pub crawl ends with Boston’s distinct recipe for the current cocktail renaissance sweeping the nation. Stephanie Schorow serves up Boston’s intoxicating story: its spirit of invention, its hardscrabble politics, its mythology, and the city’s never-ending battle between personal freedom and civic reform. “... Schorow makes it hard to put this one down.” Courtney Cox | Beer Advocate

UNDER CAPE COD WATERS In Under Cape Cod Waters, award-winning photojournalist Ethan Daniels captures the mystery and importance of the often overlooked natural communities along the Cape Cod coast. The Cape’s near-shore waters are both diverse and productive, making these coastal ecosystems as dynamic and prodigious as any along the Atlantic shoreline.

With the trained eye of a scientist and the sensibilities of an artist, Daniels photographs the resilient life forms that play such a vital role in maintaining the health and well being of this cherished peninsula. The result is a stunning portrait of a world often only seen from the surface. In the hazy, dark waters, Daniels reveals the vivid rhythms in detail: the arresting orange of a sponge, the silvery flash of fish scales, the bright blue of a crab claw. With chapters devoted to each of the Cape’s aquatic ecosystems—the salt marsh, the bay, the open ocean, and freshwater ponds—Daniels at once enlightens and educates us about the treasures hidden amidst this mesmerizing seascape.
