About Heather Atwood
Heather Atwood is author of the blog "Food for Thought" and the weekly column by the same name syndicated in a number of Massachusetts newspapers. For the online cooking site Cook123 Ms. Atwood hosts cooking videos featuring regional Massachusetts chefs and cooks. This combined work has created a web of connections in the New England food community, allowing Atwood a prized familiarity with Finns in W. Barnstable who still make fruit soup, the Gloucester Sicilians who bake their own zeppole, and day boat fishermen who enjoy selling their hard-earned catches. She reveres the people who preserve and energize the New England food landscape.
Her cookbook, "In Cod We Trust, the Celebrated Cuisine of Coastal Massachusetts, " explores the cultures that have made this ragged coastline home, and the meals they prepare.
About the book: When people think of dock-side dining in Massachusetts they imagine buttery toasted lobster rolls, steaming bowls of creamy fish chowder, and alabaster-white slabs of baked cod piled with bread crumbs, but its rich and varied cuisine reflects all who have come to call these seaports home. Cultures including, Sicilian, Portuguese, Finnish, and Irish that fished and worked the granite quarries there a century ago were so tightly bound that generations have stayed and continue to leave their culinary mark on coastline. In Cod We Trust features over 175 recipes that celebrate the area's unique place in the culinary world, and is a photographic journey for both people who love the area and those who hope to visit one day.
