The idea behind this book comes from a deep love and appreciation for New Haven, a city that holds a special place in my heart. When I learnt about the devastating impact of Covid-19 on the restaurant industry, I thought back to all the wonderful times my friends and I shared in New Haven’s local eateries as students. The restaurants, bars, and cafés of New Haven have stood by us and given us some of the best memories of our lives.
This cookbook is a little way of paying tribute to the establishments that have supported our community through thick and thin. I hope to not only highlight the vibrant food culture of our city but also document their incredible stories, which I am sure you will enjoy reading about.
