The Secret to New England Cuisine

No one knows New England like Matt Jennings. He has lived and cooked all over, from his former restaurant Farmstead in Providence to his current gem in Boston, Townsman. And now he has taken all of that knowledge (and more from his global travels) to create a book, Homegrown, that is a celebration of all things Northeastern.

We sat down with Matt to talk about the food beyond the clam chowders and lobster rolls. So watch the video above and get ready to start dreaming of summers in Maine or a winter jaunt to Boston.
