Disclosure: I’m so happy to be able to give you all a peek into Maple: 100 Sweet and Savory Recipes Featuring Pure Maple Syrup. Thanks for letting me share this beautiful cookbook with you!
New Englanders take their maple syrup very seriously. As a former resident of both New Hampshire and Vermont, and as a current resident of Massachusetts, I know this obsession all too well. Maple syrup is something we take great pride in producing here in New England. And we will showcase it at any chance we get. It’s all maple, all the time.
So when Katie Webster’s cookbook Maple: 100 Sweet and Savory Recipes Featuring Pure Maple Syrup arrived at my doorstep on the first official day of Fall, I squealed with excitement. An entire collection of recipes dedicated to the stuff that we like to affectionately call “liquid gold” is pretty much the cookbook of my dreams.
Maple is full of recipes that go way beyond the breakfast table. From Maple Ginger Chicken Thighs to Maple Bourbon Pumpkin Pie, Maple will convince you that you need to be consuming maple syrup at every single meal of the day. I think my favorite chapter is the one on cocktails. Just saying.
I had the pleasure of meeting Katie earlier this year and frankly, she is pretty irresistible. Katie has an energetic laugh, a sharp sense of humor and a passion for good food and local ingredients. We connected instantly over our mutual love of craft beer, body pump, sarcastic one-liners and of course, pure maple syrup. I’m proud to call her my friend. And I smile every time I spy her cookbook on my shelf.
Today I’m sharing Katie’s Smoky and Sweet Turkey Chili recipe. Which is seriously ON POINT. It has just enough spice and acidity to keep things interesting. But it won’t set your mouth on fire either. Because the maple syrup nicely balances out all that heat. And it lends a truly addictive quality to this chili that will have you spooning bite after bite straight from the pot to your mouth.
I’m super excited to be able to give away a copy of Maple to one lucky Floating Kitchen reader.
