9780762786411: Fairfield County Chef's Table: Extraordinary Recipes From Connecticut's Gold Coast

Fairfield County stakes a claim to some of Connecticut’s most diverse terrain, an enviable proximity to New York City, and a discerning community of food lovers driving the demand for a vibrant dining scene. The Gold Coast boasts some of the country’s toniest neighborhoods, such as Greenwich and Southport, as well as the state’s largest cities, including the historic port city of Norwalk, the corporate-minded Stamford, and the diverse Bridgeport. Fine dining, dense downtown dining districts, and neighborhood bodegas are equally at home along this dense and diverse corridor. Along Fairfield County’s suburban center are such towns as Ridgefield, New Canaan, and Westport, whose historic Main Streets and cultural landmarks draw a family-oriented population. As a result, reclaimed taverns, farmers’ markets, and upscale dining districts scattered with family-friendly options abound. At the landlocked northern fringes, quiet enclaves such as Easton, Wilton, and Newtown have large swaths of protected and undeveloped land, as well as bountiful farmland and a handful of farm-to-table restaurants.
With recipes for the home cook from over fifty of the area’s most celebrated restaurants and showcasing over 200 full-color photos featuring mouth-watering dishes, famous chefs, and lots of local flavor, Fairfield County Chef’s Table is the ultimate gift and keepsake cookbook for both tourists and locals.

About the Author:

Amy Kundrat is the executive editor of CTbites, the award-winning website devoted to chronicling great food in Connecticut, especially her home in Fairfield County. A communications specialist with a concentration in new media, Amy’s career leading external communications teams has taken her from world-class art museums, to technology start-ups, and academic institutions. She currently works in New Haven at Yale University, where she indulges in the city’s vibrant food-truck scene. She lives in the woods of northern Fairfield County with her husband.

Stephanie Webster is the editor in chief and founder of CTbites.com. Born and raised in New York City by parents who design restaurants for a living, she developed a passion for finding out-of-the-way gems during weekly trips to the depths of Chinatown and frequent trips abroad. Professionally she began her career as a photo editor in the magazine industry and then migrated to the world of new media consulting and website building during New York’s first dot-com wave. She led strategy, brand development, site architecture, and content development assignments for top consumer brands. A seven-year excursion to Seattle exposed her to a casual yet innovative approach to food that hadn’t yet made it to the East Coast. When she relocated back to Connecticut, she made it her quest to find great food and support a community of eaters that live for their next meal.

Review:

“Being a travel writer, I see plenty of nice places to live. So why do I choose Connecticut? Simple: for the food. This book proves that rationale. Here are delicious recipes from the best restaurants in Fairfield County as well as loving descriptions and evocative photos of them all. . . . The incredible diversity includes not only regular restaurants but also farmers’ markets and ice cream parlors, diners and pizza parlors, coffee roasters and food trucks. . . . This is a great book about a great place to eat.”
––Michael Stern, Roadfood.com and coauthor of the Roadfood books and The Lexicon of Real American Food

“As a decades-long observer and critic of the Connecticut restaurant scene, I applaud Amy Kundrat’s handsome new book on Fairfield County, center now of so many superb restaurants.”
––Patricia Brooks, author of Food Lovers’ Guide to Connecticut
