Jonnycakes, gaggers, and stuffies are not typically found on restaurant menus. Chorizo, quahogs, and coffee cabinets are uncommon as well. In the diners, restaurants, and homes of Rhode Island, however, these foods are well known and part of a vibrant food subculture.
With a population of barely one million people, Rhode Island has a surprising number of local dishes, food traditions, and culinary terms that are unique to the state. Author Linda Beaulieu explores the food of Rhode Island, especially in and around Providence, and discusses how such a small state can have so many big flavors.
In The Providence and Rhode Island Cookbook, the author shares recipes from talented chefs, family, and friends. These recipes highlight the bounty of native seafood and produce, as well as celebrate the ethnic mix of people and the characters who have populated the state over time.
Find recipes for Buddy Cianci”s Marinara Sauce or Linguine a la Nirope (“Nirope” stands for Nick, Ron, and Pete Cardi, local businessmen and owners of the Cardi furniture chain); make a Wimpy Skippy (spinach pie); and discover why Rhode Island chowder is like none other.
From the Back Cover
Rhode Islanders have an ongoing fascination with food. Some attribute this to the state’s ethnic mix: a large Italian population that has an inherent love of food, wine, and the good life; people of French and Portuguese descent, whose ancestral recipes are now a part of Rhode Island cuisine; and the Native Americans who were the first to use the bounty of the sea and land to prepare their meals. Whatever the reasons, Rhode Island’s food traditions are steeped in history and today are part of a vibrant food subculture. In The Providence and Rhode Island Cookbook, author Linda Beaulieu explores the food of the Ocean State, especially in and around Providence, and reveals how such a small state can have so many big flavors.
With more than 200 recipes and engaging sidebars about food, local lore, and state history, this book celebrates the dishes and culinary terms that are unique to Rhode Island. Home cooks will learn how to make their own Wimpy Skippys (spinach pies) or Zeppoles, and visitors will discover what a quahog is, how a cabinet can fit neatly in their hand, and why an Awful, Awful isn’t awful at all.
