"We see Sissy Hicks as the Alice Waters of Vermont," says Michael Stern" - relying on local farmers and greengrocers, cooking meals that reflect the seasons, and creating a menu that is at once respectful of tradition and yet always surprising. . . . This cookbook is one that cooks will turn to for ideas for Sunday dinners, company's-coming meals, candlelight suppers, and leisurely family breakfasts on a weekend morning. And it will be a book that readers will want to curl up with by the fire on a winter's evening."

The Dorset Inn, a special-occasion extraordinarily romantic restaurant, is a destination for those who go through southern Vermont to ski and sightsee. People honeymoon here, have anniversary meals here, and come to the Dorset Inn to get away from it all.

The Dorset Inn is a place rich with historical association with the very beginnings of America and American cooking. It was on the Dorset Village Green that the Green Mountain Boys prepared for battle in the Revolutionary War and just down the road is Arlington, where Norman Rockwell created his most beloved paintings.

Elegant Comfort Food from the Dorset Inn not only celebrates the history of the inn and the spirit of America found in New England. It also is a practical cookbook containing recipes founded on a tradition of hearty portions, clarity of flavors, and transformation of leftovers into glorious meals, but refined and elevated.

I made the Hot Apple Oatmeal Cereal twice and the first time it was a disaster, the second time a success. Following the recipe to the letter, I ended up with a curdled, inedible mess--the recipe calls for boiling milk, always a bad idea. The second time, I substituted water for the milk and the result was delicious. I also suggest using DARK brown sugar: it adds more flavor and more eye-appeal to the finished result. I haven't tried other recipes from this book, yet, but I hope they will produce better results, as originally written.

For all, and especially those who have been privileged to enjoy Sissy's signature recipes at the Dorset Inn, this is a must have cookbook. There are so many family favorites in this cookbook that is impossible to name them. The book has some colorful info about the Inn and how its former owner/chef extraordinare Sissy Hicks came to it. I am very glad I decided to buy this book sight unseen.

This is an amazing collection of expertly crafted recipes with a home touch about them. I have never been to the Dorset Inn but I know I would be in heaven in their dining room. The recipes are straightforward but very special and make you feel that you could make them at home. I recommend it highly.
