Each seasonal section starts off with an introduction to typical ingredients used at that particular time. As the sections progress, you are introduced in-depth to specific spices, cooking methods, and other ingredients. The section progresses from drinks and appetizers to main dishes, sides, and desserts.
So far I have made several of the summer recipes and loved them all. I'm very much looking forward to trying more of the fall recipes as the freshest ingredients become available. I just made the Harvest Cake today and thought it was positively delightful- I'm making a second to freeze and save tomorrow!
Overall, a great book for the novice or intermediate cook that is looking to familiarize themselves with seasonal cooking or a collection of recipes that can be utilized at all times of the year.
So the four seasons of the best of fruits and vegetables are offered in wonderful, bright layout of four-color photos and sidebars of choosing and preparing seasonal fruits and veggies, then great recipe collection for each season. To date, had great results with: Banana-Rum Cocunut Cookies; Chipotle Salmon Burgers (great with whole-wheat English muffins and spiced mayo); Steamed Carrots with Garlic-Ginger Butter; Yellow Squash Ribbons with Red Onions and Parmesan; Brandied Berry Milk Shake; Roasted Butternut Squash and Shallot Soup; Peach and Brie Quesadillas; Blueberry and Orange Parfaits;
Looking forward to trying such as: Gratin of Cauliflower with Gruyere; Pear Pie with Streusel Topping and Caramel Sauce; Carmelized Fresh Figs with Sweet Cream; Peppermint Cheesecake Brownies; Leg of Lamb with Roasted Pear and Pine Nut Relish.
This is fine collection of healthy, creative recipes! Layout is bright and fresh and well done! Great as gift for someone or yourself!
Other specific pros:
-Relies on healthy, whole ingredients for good nutrition rather than just artificial/fat-free substitutions and small portions
-Includes simple instructions for things more advanced cooks take for granted but beginners don't know how to do (i.e., best way to roast peppers)
-There are pictures of almost everything
-Recipes don't require a zillion ingredients each
-Well-organized with very helpful indices
