About this blog: New England Country Cooking with Tinky
I’m Tinky–a writer, cook, and chanteuse living in the wilds (or maybe the tames) of western Massachusetts. A few years ago I wrote The Pudding Hollow Cookbook, a culinary portrait of my hilltown region.
In the pages of this blog I share my food-related perigrinations throughout New England and beyond—plus a few recipes I’m making as the seasons roll around.
I believe in food that speaks of tradition (thus “our grandmothers’ kitchens,” since most good cooks learned their craft at their parents’ and grandparents’ knees), that doesn’t take a lot of work, and that evokes a sense of place.
My oval kitchen table (which came to me from my grandmother) is the place at which I share my life and my food with friends and neighbors. I hope this forum will increase those friends and neighbors as it evolves.
