About Homegrown
In his debut cookbook, chef Matt Jennings honors the iconic foods of his heritage and celebrates the fresh ingredients that have come to define his renowned, inventive approach to cooking. With four James Beard Award nominations for Best Chef: Northeast, three Cochon 555 wins, and a spot on Food & Wine’s 40 Big Food Thinkers 40 and Under list, Jennings is a culinary innovator known for his unexpected uses of traditional northern ingredients (maple syrup glazes a roasted duck; a molasses and cider barbecue sauce makes the perfect accompaniment to grilled chicken wings; carbonara takes on a northern slant with the addition of razor clams). With over 100 vibrant, ingredient-driven recipes—including modern spins on New England staples like clam chowder, brown bread, and Boston cream whoopie pies, as well as beloved dishes from Jennings’s award-winning restaurant, Townsman—Homegrown shines a spotlight on a trailblazing chef and pays homage to America’s oldest cuisine. 

About Matt Jennings
With four James Beard Foundation Award nominations for Best Chef: Northeast, three Cochon 555 wins, and a spot on Food & Wine’s 40 Under 40 Big Thinkers in America list, chef Matt Jennings is recognized nationally for his bold, lusty cooking, and his dedication to New England artisan and seasonal ingredients. After a decade of success with his restaurant Farmstead in Providence, Rhode Island, Jennings returned to his native city of Boston, Massachusetts, in February 2015 to open Townsman. The restaurant is a New England brasserie that pays homage to his deep roots in the area, showcasing his commitment to locality and love of the Northeast. Townsman was named one of Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in America; USA Today named it one of the 10 Best New Restaurants in the country; and Food & Wine included Townsman in their list of 10 Restaurants of the Year. Jennings’s first book, Homegrown: Cooking from My New England Roots, will be published October 17, 2017.

About the Author
Rowan Jacobsen is the James Beard Award- winning author of A Geography of Oysters and Fruitless Fall. Jacobsen's writings on food, the environment, and their interconnected nature have appeared in the New York Times, Wild Earth, Harper's, Eating Well, and Newsweek. He lives in rural Vermont with his wife and son.

About the Book
A decade ago, Rowan Jacobsen wrote a book called A Geography of Oysters that celebrated the romance of oysters, the primal rush of slurping a raw denizen of the sea, and the mysteries of molluscan terroir. The book struck a chord, and American oyster culture has been on a gravity-defying trajectory ever since.

With lavish four-color photos throughout by renowned photographer David Malosh, The Essential Oyster is the definitive book for oyster lovers everywhere, featuring stunning portraits, tasting notes, and backstories of all the top oysters, as well as recipes from America's top oyster chefs and a guide to the best oyster bars. Spotlighting more than a hundred of North America's greatest oysters--the unique, the historically significant, the flat-out yummiest—The Essential Oyster introduces the oyster culture and history of every region of North America, as well as overseas. There is no coastline from British Columbia to Baja, from New Iberia to New Brunswick, that isn't producing great oysters. For the most part, these are deeper cupped, stronger shelled, finer flavored, and more stylish than their predecessors. Some have colorful stories to tell. Some have quirks. All have character. The Essential Oyster will help you find the best, and help you to cherish them better. That is what's captured—and celebrated—in these pages.
