YOU DON’T KNOW BEANS ‘TIL YOU’VE BEEN TO BOSTON!

Boston, founded in 1630, has become famous for fine foods one of which is Boston baked beans. However, residents of Beacon Hill (pictured on the card) would rather be known for exceptionally succulent seafoods and robust yankee cooking which brings out the natural, hearty flavor of meat rather than disguise it with spices and seasonings.


That’s a code word for “People up here don’t season their food.” Boston native cooking does have a certain loveable sturdiness, but bring your own salt and pepper. Except for the beans. For some reason, classic New England baked beans are permitted to be the lone exception to the no-seasoning rule, which probably explains why they’re a successful cultural export and almost all the rest of Yankee food is not.
