A Shaker Feast

The Shakers’ commitment to excellence in all things was evident even in the kitchen, where basic foods were made delicious by careful cooking and the addition of herbs and spices. The time-honored recipes that follow have been adapted from Shaker cookery books, which emphasize regional ingredients—fresh vegetables, fruit, and maple syrup—and simple sauces and techniques.
