The origin of New England cuisine is closely connected with the region’s history and its geography. The early settlers to the area were of English, Irish, and Dutch descent and brought with them their traditional culinary practices. These influences are still evident in the dishes common to New England today – from seafood chowders, clam bakes and baked beans to Yankee pot roast and steamed lobster.


The geographical location of New England was a major factor in shaping the region’s cuisine. From the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean came an abundance of seafood, including cod, haddock, mackerel, herring, tuna and lobster. Native Americans were also great contributors to the regional diet through their knowledge of indigenous plants such as corn, squash and pumpkins. Many recipes today include these ingredients combined with those brought by newcomers to create unique dishes like “Johnnycake” (a type of cornbread), “Indian Pudding” (made from cornmeal sweetened with molasses) and a variety of succotash dishes.


Thanksgiving is a particularly important holiday in New England – Roast turkey may be the star attraction on Thanksgiving tables throughout America but in New England more often than not it will be accompanied by sides like mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes or yams, cranberry sauce and other vegetables cooked in cream sauce or buttery glazes– all creating an iconic combination that has come to be known as “New England cuisine”. 


All these elements combined have created a distinct culinary tradition that continues celebrate many aspects of life in New England – from its fishing industry to its agricultural roots - while providing delicious meals enjoyed around tables across this area for centuries!
