Last week, my colleague Alessandra Bulow celebrated J.D. Salinger with a rye cocktail, but after reading about Salinger in the New York Times yesterday, I feel inspired to honor his memory a different way. While much has already been made of Salinger, the literary-lion-in-hiding, I was charmed to find that his neighbors in Cornish, New Hampshire (pop. 1,700) had known a different sort of man—one who regularly attended $12 roast beef church suppers, making sure to sit near the pies. To pay tribute to Salinger, the New Hampshire "towns-person," here are 12 fantastic roasts, including horseradish-crusted roast beef (pictured) and 15 terrific pies and tarts, like a double-crust apple pie.
