Stretching from Maine to Connecticut, New England isn’t one single state but is actually a collection of 6 states on the Eastern Coast of America. Known as the “Birthplace of America”, New England boasts lengthy Atlantic coastlines and forest covered hills and mountains. In a relatively small space, there is the opportunity to wade in the Atlantic Ocean, climb Mount Washington or wander around the oldest University in America, Harvard.
With town names such as Essex, New London and Stratford, as the pilgrims sought to create a home away from home as well as lingering British influence, New England is often seen as being quite different to the rest of the US. They are one of the few areas to use roundabouts!
New England is home to Plymouth Rock, where some of the first pilgrims to the Americas were said to have landed in 1620; it was the birthplace of Dr. Seuss; it has both Harvard and Yale, possibly some of the most famous universities in the world and around all of these historical landmarks, the landscape affords you the opportunity to go both snowboarding and surfing in the same day.
New England is a historical, cultural and geographical treasure, but don't take our word for it, as any New Englander would tell you:
"An ounce of experience is worth a pound of theory".
The recipe for our New England soup actually came to us when we stayed in New York. We were looking for a soup that wasn't as exotic as some of the others in our range. We travelled to the US and tasted some of their traditional soups and then someone asked if we had ever had a butternut squash soup.
After the first spoonful, we were smitten. It tasted like Autumn. We just looked at this warm, orange bowl with steam rising from it and it made us think of the classic image people have in their minds of New England. Crimson leaves, mountain ranges, this soup was exactly what we wanted. We added in a dollop of mango puree for a bit of natural sweetness and then splashed some cream in for that soft, velvety texture. Even we couldn't believe it's 1% fat. It's so rich!
Once there was an insurance officer named Charles Leggett.
In the late 1930’s he decided to move to Stow, Massachusetts in order to spend time with his father. There he bought a house in the country that had over 90 acres of land.
Charles had never been a farmer before, but when he was faced with either leaving the land to sit there unused or learn how to tend it, he rolled up his sleeves and got stuck into it in the hopes that he could grow a few crops and earn a modest amount of money.
