Quick Overview:

Elegant Comfort Food from the Dorset Inn not only celebrates the history of the inn and the spirit of America found in New England. It also is a practical cookbook containing recipes founded on a tradition of hearty portions, clarity of flavors, and transformation of leftovers into glorious meals, but refined and elevated.
 

"We see Sissy Hicks as the Alice Waters of Vermont," says Michael Stern" - relying on local farmers and greengrocers, cooking meals that reflect the seasons, and creating a menu that is at once respectful of tradition and yet always surprising. . . . This cookbook is one that cooks will turn to for ideas for Sunday dinners, company's-coming meals, candlelight suppers, and leisurely family breakfasts on a weekend morning. And it will be a book that readers will want to curl up with by the fire on a winter's evening."

The Dorset Inn, a special-occasion extraordinarily romantic restaurant, is a destination for those who go through southern Vermont to ski and sightsee. People honeymoon here, have anniversary meals here, and come to the Dorset Inn to get away from it all.

The Dorset Inn is a place rich with historical association with the very beginnings of America and American cooking. It was on the Dorset Village Green that the Green Mountain Boys prepared for battle in the Revolutionary War and just down the road is Arlington, where Norman Rockwell created his most beloved paintings.

Elegant Comfort Food from the Dorset Inn not only celebrates the history of the inn and the spirit of America found in New England. It also is a practical cookbook containing recipes founded on a tradition of hearty portions, clarity of flavors, and transformation of leftovers into glorious meals, but refined and elevated.
