New Hampshire native Mary Mason Campbell’s Butt’ry Shelf Cookbook mimics the contents and recipes found in the time-honored ‘Buttery Book’, a book of receipts and recipes handed down through generations and kept in a shelf of prominence in the traditional New England kitchen. The pages contain recipes from Campbell’s own family ‘Buttery Book’ with beautiful illustrations by close friend and fellow New Englander, Tasha Tudor.
