Editorial Reviews

Review

"Perhaps it is the easy going style of P. Allen Smith's Seasonal Recipes from the Garden that has me feeling like I have just spent time visiting over his garden gate. The recipes are as approachable as a handshake and offer the same reassuring instruction I have grown to adore from America's knowledgeable neighbor gardener.  Any season is fine for sharing this lovely book."
-MARTHA FOOSE, author of Screen Doors and Sweet Tea: Recipes and Tales from a Southern Cook and A Southerly Course: Recipes and Stories from Close to Home

"In a time when chefs are planting gardens and learning to cook responsively, here we have a master gardener who has always done so, with elan, enthusiasm and delicious results."
-MOLLY O’NEILL, author of One Big Table: A Portrait of American Cooking and Mostly True: A Memoir of Family, Food, and Baseball

"P. Allen Smith reminds us that the home garden and the kitchen are soul mates, and his new cookbook illuminates that happy relationship with recipes full of snappy Southern flavors and with the light, reassuring touch that his fans adore. But even garden-phobes can take pleasure in these pages: following the seasons with Smith in the kitchen is a total joy!"
-MATT LEE AND TED LEE, authors of The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern

Seasonal Recipes is of course divided into the seasons, each section containing; starters, soups and sandwiches, salads, main dishes, vegetables and sides, bread and such, and desserts. There is also a section on how to grow your own ingredients.
The purpose is to prepare food to match the season. There are black and white pictures of Smith's family and most of the recipes have colour pictures. There is also an introduction to each recipe and many of them are ones that even picky eaters might find palatable.

This is not strictly a vegetarian book. There are plenty of recipes for vegetables, but also ones that have chicken, pork, seafood and beef. The recipes are not that hard, but are different and fresh. Two of our family favorites are the Sweet Potato Bread and Kent's Killer Fresh Apple Cake.
This book is definitely for those who wish to cook some diverse recipes and stay in tune with the four seasons.

Format: Hardcover
Apparently P. is a "Well-known personality and respected garden authority." And you know what? It definitely shows. There are 120 recipes divided into spring, summer, fall, and winter, and the vegetables take center stage (yes!). He doesn't have lots of seafood and expensive cuts of meat such as duck or foie gras, it's just good ingredients you can imagine him picking from his garden and making into a delicious, simple meal. OK there is one duck recipe, but it's a stew.

I made the Golden Couscous with Pine Nuts the other day, and have bookmarked several recipes I'd like to try, including white cheddar parsnips and potatoes, carrot ginger soup, and tiny orange muffins.

The book includes a good index and tips on growing your own food. Although the gardening section is only a few pages, it packs a lot of info. I especially like how he shows how to do succession planting in 8×8 beds.

So even if you've never heard of P, definitely give P. Allen Smith's Seasonal Recipes from the Garden a look.

Disclosure; I received a complimentary review copy from the publisher; all opinions are my own.

Despite having a small apartment patio which limited my gardening area, I used to grow quite a few things that later wound up boiling, simmering and on occasion, burning, on the stove. These days I can't do either, but I still review the books for my monthly column in the newspaper SENIOR NEWS.

Thanks to the recent push the last couple of years towards growing food locally, there has been a rash of cookbooks and gardening books devoted to the subject. Whether this type of deal is going to be meaningfully sustained for years to come or flame out in a few months like most fads do remains to be seen. In the meantime, P. Allen Smith's latest book is part of that movement

This 256 colorful page book is organized into four sections named for the seasons of the year. After a short introduction that covers how the book is organized, how the recipes were considered and other information. The book starts off with "SPRING" on page 14. Since section headers, recipes titles, etc. are displayed in all caps, this review will follow the book's format.

The "SPRING" section opens with "STARTERS" such as "STRAWBERRY LEMONADE" (pages 16-17), "GREEK SALAD" (page 18) or "SMOKED BLUE CAT PATE" (page 20) made from catfish among other recipes. "SOUPS AND SANWICHES" follows in the section and opens with "GRILLED SALMON SANDWICH WITH LEMON-DILL MAYO on pages 26-27. Several more suggestions follow before the section moves into "SALADS" such as "POACHED EGG AND SPINIACH SALAD" (pages 30 -32) among others. Also present are various dressings one can make instead of buying something at the store.

"MAIN DISHES" comes next in the "SPRING" section and starts off with a recipe for "BLACK BEAN AND SPINIACH BURRITOS" on pages 40 and 41.

Great use of fresh ingredients without having to be a graduate chef. Some personal family related recipes. The blackberry jam cake is worth the price of admission.

This book is filled with great recipes and ideas for cooking directly from the garden. Edible gardening is very popular right now, and anyone who is interested in this topic will love this book.

The recipes are easy to make and presented with full color photographs. The book is divided by seasons. The construction of the book is better than average. i would say that the paper quality is one of the best, which showcases the color photos.

Overall, this is a very nice purchase for those who love to cook or love to garden.
