In Saturday Beans and Sunday Suppers, you’ll discover a delicious collection of thoughts, memories, and recipes, all about food, written by one of New England’s treasured writers.

Praise for Edie Clark’s previous book The View from Mary’s Farm
“Edie Clark’s clear-eyed and lyrical essays capture the essence of New England’s weather, season, landscape and wonderfully independent- minded natives the way Wendell Berry’s writing evokes the natural world of Kentucky. In the tradition of Frost, Thoreau, and Emily Dickinson, Ms. Clark shows us how the small and large satisfactions of living close to nature can inform life with grace, meaning, and beauty.”
– Howard Frank Mosher, author of Disappearances and Northern Border
