Amazon.com Review

Hay Day is the farm stand that grew and grew. It started in well-heeled Westport, Connecticut, in 1978, just as everyone's interest in good food was picking up. Eventually, the founding Van Rensselaer family merged their Hay Day Markets with a chain of stores, Sutton Place Gourmet, which together serve customers from Washington, D.C., to New England.

Now, thanks to food writer Kim Rizk, you can make 250 of their simple, much-loved dishes at home. Start the day with Jam-Filled Corn Muffins, chill out with refreshing Cucumber Watermelon Cooler, comfort friends with healthy Mediterranean Turkey Loaf made with oats, and end an elegant meal with decadent Berries in Passion Fruit Cream, which requires the very best fruit, in season. Step-by-step instructions and an informal, relaxed style make this a delightful and enjoyable book to cook from. Punctuated with line drawings and chatty asides like advice on how to ripen pears and how to select good fontina cheese, ideas and inspiration are endless. The Hay Day Country Market Cookbook is crammed with tips for entertaining and suggests many fabulous full menus. The Fireside Apres Ski Menu, with Polenta Crostini, Mediterranean Bean Soup, and Gingered Pear Crispis is a meal that will delight and impress your guests.

With its emphasis on the freshest of ingredients and warm, country-inspired cooking, you'll revisit the Hay Day Country Market Cookbook time after time. --Dana Jacobi --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

What started out in 1978 as a single farm stand in Westport, Conn., is now a 14-store chain that reaches into New York, Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Still very successful with its imaginative take-home food, Hay Day now reveals 250 of its most popular recipes that have captivated those indulging their increasingly cultured taste buds. Hors d'oeuvres include Tapenade and Chevre on Spears of Fresh Fennel and Belgian Endive with Smoked Trout Pate. Entree flavors can be intense as in Maple-Glazed Pork Chops with Roasted Corn Relish and Peppered Tuna with Port and Pears, and as comforting as the signature Puff Pastry-Topped Chicken Pies. An intriguing accent is added to Mediterranean Turkey Loaf, a low-fat meatloaf that includes a cup of ratatouille. Couscous Vegetable Lasagne replaces the usual sheets with the granular pasta. Another signature dish is Hay Day's Vegetable Pancakes, a fried melange of peppers, zucchini and onion bound with mashed beans and sweet potatoes. Three-Grain Salad is sturdy with wheat berries, pearl barley and millet seeds, and the repasts can be topped off with Bourbon Apple Walnut Pie or Belgian Chocolate Brownies. Not to be dismissed as simply yuppie fare, Hay Day's offerings are well-conceived and within the scope of most cooks. 50,000 first printing; 15-city author tour.

The best thing about this cookbook is that the recipes are simple yet elegant. The fresher the ingredients, the better the turnout, of course. The book is divided by an introduction explaining the Hay Day story, breakfast or brunch items, appetizers, soups and breads, salads, main dish entrees, vegetable and grain dishes and desserts. One day this past summer, I made the green beans, tomatoes and pine nuts and I can't stop making them because they are so good. Our other favorites are the honey-mustard ham, BLT Pasta Salad, Peppered Tuna with Port and Pears and the Maryland Crabcakes (being from Baltimore, I can attest that these crabcakes are pretty authentic to what a crabcake is intended to be). The Belgian Chocolate Brownies are to die for. The recipes are not complicated and the ingredients are not hard to find. If you like to keep your cooking simple but still wonderful, give this cookbook a try. You won't regret it.

I heartily agree with all the reviews. This cookbook is wonderful. I had never heard of the Hay Day Country Market (being a midwesterner) but was intrigued by the book. I bought it a year ago and it is a constant reference. I have even given this book as gifts to 5 people and each has loved. My particular favorites are the Pecan Crusted Chicken and Homemade Ginger Brew. Buy it and enjoy!!

I grew up near Westport, Connecticut, so I was already a fan of Hay Day before getting this book- this book has hundreds of ideas on how to use fresh, yummy fruits and vegetables. The first dish I made was the Mediterranean Crouton Salad- and it was delicious. This is the one-book does all cookbook I have been searching for- my bible.

This is one of the most interesting books that I have come across since I bought the Silver Palette books years ago. Every recipe that I tried worked out very well. Particularly the shiitake mushroom barley soup and the whole meal bread. Together they made a wonderful meal.
The desserts are spectacular. From cookies to cakes I found each recipe straightforward and tasty. The oatmeal raisin crisp cookies were a favorite of my children. The sour lemon cake went over well with my most recent dinner guests.

We returned from our trip to the States bearing this exciting, new cookbook. We love to cook and to read cookbooks, and have quite a collection. From several of them we return to use a handful of favorites over the year. In this one, it reads like it will take a year to try all that sound so tempting. Shared the curried chutney spread on apple slices with friends to oos and ahs! Our dinner of mushroom barley soup, peasant bread and fabulous brownies was a winner, as well as easy to prepare. Must now choose what to enjoy today. Kudos to Hayday and to Kim Rizk.

Our dinner of mushroom barley soup, peasant bread and batch of the fabulous brownies was a "winner"...as well as easy to prepare. Must now chose what to enjoy today. What a great gift for the holidays! Kudos to Hayday and Kim Rizk

This is a marvelous book for people who love to cook with fresh ingredients. I've been looking for a cold fruit soup recipe using yogurt for years that's similar to one we've had in our favorite restaurant, and there it was! Try the Chilled Strawberry Yogurt Soup -- it was wonderful! Also helpful are the hints on what to serve with recipes and other uses for them.

From the first recipes I tried - Jamaican Spiced Snapper and Rum Glazed Plantains - I was hooked! I've tried numerous recipes since and each one was 5 star! I'd recommend this cookbook to anyone!
