Issue 08: The Roots Issue
t.e.l.l. New England's 8th installment, the 'Roots' issue, is inspired by traditions rooted to New England. In this issue we will embrace the idea of going back to our roots. We will indulge in age-old cuisine, celebrate centuries old communities, and uphold traditions that have been passed down from family to family. We will highlight those small businesses and shops that honor the family tree, the true mom & pop, sibling and spousal endeavors operating just down the street. New England is nothing without its roots - they shape who we are as a community, and will continue to do so for years to come. By celebrating and sharing these roots, we hope to help them grow deeper and so to the time-honored traditions of our region.
