Two popular North End restaurants that have made a name for themselves outside the confines of the neighborhood are now featured in The Food Lens’s first digital cookbook “Dining in Boston”.
The Food Lens, an online dining resource that helps readers discover the best food, drink, and happenings in Boston, has included recipes from Neptune Oyster on Salem Street and Union Square Donuts at the Boston Public Market.
The Food Lens’s founders Molly Ford and Sarah Jesup also compiled more than 38 other recipes from the area’s best chefs and restaurants in an effort to bring their readers a new way to experience local dining at home during Covid-19.
A portion of proceeds from Dining in Boston will benefit Massachusetts Restaurants United (MRU) to help strengthen and support the industry after a challenging year.
“We find purpose in our work to showcase the area’s many talented chefs every day, but this effort feels particularly meaningful as we look back on a year of Covid-19 and the devastating toll it has taken on the city’s hospitality industry,” said The Food Lens Co-Founder, Molly Ford. “Our hope is to not only offer our readers with another fun and dynamic way to experience their favorite spots, but also to give back to the restaurant community that we love so deeply,” added Co-Founder Sarah Jesup.
The digital cookbook includes Neptune Oyster’s recipe for their famous Cioppino, an Italian seafood stew and Union Square Donuts’s recipe for Apple Cider Donuts The Food Lens’ digital cookbook, Dining in Boston is available for purchase at thefoodlens.com/shop for $14.00, with 10% of every sale contributing to MRU’s mission to not only help local restaurants survive the pandemic, but to keep them open and thriving long after the spread of Covid-19
