If you consider yourself a locavore, someone who shops regularly at a farmers market or CSA, or want to learn more about doing so, you should pick up this book. If you've been timid about joining a CSA or visiting your local farmers market because you're not quite sure what to do with all those fresh fruits and veggies, this book will help you!
I loved just reading through this cookbook; I can't wait to make more of the recipes in it.
Disclosure: I received this book for free from the publisher to review on my blog [...]. I was not obligated to review the book and all opinions are mine.
Illustrated with enticing photographs of the produce, people, places and dishes, the book is divided into three sections - Vegetables, Fruits, and Meat, Poultry and Eggs. Vegetables, organized alphabetically, get the bulk of the attention, from Grilled Asparagus with Citrus Oil to Lebanese Pickled Turnips. Fletcher includes classics like dilly beans, braised Romano beans, and pickled okra, and lots of contemporary fare, like Green Garlic Soufflé and Grilled Radicchio with Bagna Cauda and Greek Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes and Grilled Pita Chips.
Fruit dishes include Mixed Citrus Compote with Pomegranate Seeds, Peach and Boysenberry Cobbler, and Baby Greens with Grilled Figs, Blue Cheese and Walnuts. Grilled Five-Spice Chicken, Lamb Burgers with Grilled Red Onions and Feta or Grilled Sausages with Baby Turnips and Turnip Greens round out the meal.
Innovative, mouth watering and fresh, this will furnish plenty of ideas for all that summer produce.
