The folks at The Food Lens have created Dining in Boston, a digital cookbook highlighting unique cuisine found in Greater Boston and New England. They’ve compiled more than 40 recipes from some of the best chefs in the area to create a digital resource that’ll help you try amazing food and experience local dining while staying safe at home. Try your hand at iconic dishes like the baked Alaska from Cambridge’s Oleana, focaccia from MIDA in the South End and Ethel’s creamy lobster roll from Row 34 in Fort Point.
And, as you enjoy the foods that you’ve been missing, you’ll be giving back to your favorite eateries, too. A portion of the proceeds from the instructive digital tome, available through the Food Lens website for $14, will benefit Massachusetts Restaurants United (MRU) and their efforts to help strengthen and support the industry through this difficult time. Take a peek at some of the recipe highlights below and get your copy — it’s a great way to up your game in the kitchen and support your local culinary heroes.
