Editorial Reviews

Review

As fresh as a basket of just-picked produce-and every bit as appealing-Holly Herrick's Southern Farmers Market Cookbook sprouts in bookstores this month. Chock full of colorful recipes, it's the perfect helpmate for at-home cooks looking to make the most of the Lowcountry's bountiful harvest.
(Charleston Magazine 2009-06-01)

Between farmers and the public, "The link is there, the bond is forged," she says.

"I think it's always been in the South, but, like everywhere, I think for a while we got away from it because so much of our food was packaged, which became a convenient way to shop. Because farmers markets are becoming more prevalent and because people are becoming more aware of why it's important to shop local and seasonal, they're kind of feeding upon each other. I think it's really exciting."
(The Post and Courier 2009-05-27)

"Holly Herrick dedicates her new cookbook to those who 'nurture, cultivate , and bring forth the priceless gems of the seasons. She aptly pays special tribute to small farmers of the South, 'who achieve all of this with the added burden of a scorching summer sun.'...."Local, fresh and organic are trendy buzzwords, but they're really nothing new, Holly points out. "Our ancestors ate whatever they could catch that day or pick from the field."
(Pat Wilens Southern Living, People & Places 2009-05-01)

Ever visit your local farmer’s market and find yourself loaded up with an abundance of fresh, yummy, locally grown fruits and veggies, and then find yourself back home looking at it all on your counter top and saying to yourself…”Now what?, now that I have all of this yummy goodness setting here, what can I make with all of it?”. . . This is a book that you’ll find yourself turning to time and time again after your weekend visits to your local farmers market. No more of the “What shall I make with this?” game. Now you’ll have the answer with more than 75 seasonal recipes to help you along the way. As we say in the South…”Ya’ll eat up now!” (Tina Wilson Small Town Living 2010-09-04)

What make this book a fantastic choice for newbie locavores is the way Holly opens up the world of seasonal eating and farmers markets. She acts as a guide, explaining the importance and benefits of eating local food, giving you tips on what to bring/what not to bring to a farmers market, and providing suggestions on how to stock a pantry that is ready for seasonal cooking. (Leah Loves Local 2012-05-31)

From the Inside Flap

The time to eat healthy and buy locally has arrived. Buying at farmers markets means getting better, fresh-picked produce that leads to amazing home-cooked meals.

Southern Farmers Market Cookbook teaches how to enjoy shopping at local markets and gives instruction on what to look for and what’s to be expected to make the experience more fulfilling and fun.

More than 75 seasonal recipes show how to take these tasty fresh foods from market to table in mouthwatering ways. Try the crisp Butter Bean and Grape Tomato Brushcetta, the sweet Wild Honey–Glazed Carrots with Mint and Green Onions, the savory Wine-Poached Salmon with Cucumber Crudité Sauce, and the luscious Warm Wild Cherry Carolina Gold Rice Pudding.

While Southern Farmers Market Cookbook features produce grown in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Kentucky, and Tennessee, many of the same foods can be purchased locally in most areas of the country.

A long-time restaurant critic and features writer for Charleston’s only daily newspaper, the Post and Courier, Holly Herrick has garnered multiple awards for food writing. A graduate of Boston College and recipient of Le Grande Diplomein pastry and cuisine from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France, Holly is a certified chef who puts her palate, creativity, and experience to use in manifesting tasty recipes using the freshest produce available throughout the growing season. She lives in Charleston, South Carolina.

More About the Author

Holly Herrick is a bona fide lover of delicious food and life in general. Born in Alabama and raised in New England, Herrick's roots hail back to rural life. Later, she attended Boston College as a journalism major and began her food-writing career with a Grande Diplome in pastry and cuisine from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France.

Holly is a first-place national award-winning restaurant critic and food writer. She's written features and columns for many magazines, including Southern Living, Lowcountry Living, Bon Appetit and more. Her first book, Southern Farmers Market Cookbook (Gibbs Smith) was released in June, 2009. Holly's second book, The Charleston Chef's Table Cookbook - Extraordinary Recipes from the Heart of the Old South (Three Forks Press) was released in December, 2009. Tart Love - Sassy, Sweet, and Savory, a delicious and facile instructive nod to Holly's love of tarts via her education and life in France, was released October 1, 2011(Gibbs Smith). Food Lovers' Guide to Charleston and Savannah - The Best Restaurants, Markets & Local Culinary Offerings (Globe Pequot Press, December, 20, 2011), reflects Holly' love and culinary familiarity with both of these great Southern cities and the best food and foodie destinations they offer.

Holly's most recent books hail to Holly's classical French training roots. The French Cook: Sauces (Gibbs Smith, March 2013) invites readers to embrace the worlds of delicious and versatile classical French mother sauces for easy home meals with fine sauce panache. And the freshly released French Cook: Cream Puffs and Eclairs (Gibbs Smith, October 2013) enters the delicious realm of sweet and savory choux pastry delights.

Holly resides happily in beautiful Charleson, SC with her chocolate cocker spaniel therapy dog, Tann Mann and her chubby cat, Chutney. As always, she wishes you "Bon Appetit!"

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Wendy K. Laubach on May 29, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a well laid-out cookbook with good photos, some surprising combinations of ingredients, and very good ideas for using just the kind of vegetables you're likely to find growing locally in the South. The cookbook is organized both by season and by type of dish. Its style reminds me a bit of Jamie Oliver. The recipes capitalize on the freshness of their ingredients. This would be a nice gift cookbook.

Format: Paperback
Farmer's markets are a very special and appreciation local community event where people can access all manner of seasonal produce that because they are locally grown and marketed tend to be fresher and generally better than their counterparts for sale in the major chain supermarkets. What Holly Herrick has done in "Southern Farmers Market Cookbook" is to compile nutritious, delicious, 'kitchen cook friendly' recipes incorporating locally purchased and fresh seasonal produce. The recipes are drawn from the farmers market communities from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. From Cantaloupe Balls with Prosciutto, Lime, and Basil; Fresh Sweet Onion and Corn Chowder; Spinach and Radish Salad with Candied Pecans and Red Wine Vinaigrette; and Red Cabbage Slaw with Bacon, Scallions, Toasted Pecans and Roquefort; to Sweet River Run Farms Grass-Feed Beef Meatloaf; Soulful Braised Pork with Fresh Cider and Winesap Apples; Strawberry Mint Clafoutis; and Berry Coddled Cobbler, "Southern Farmers Market Cookbook" showcases superbly illustrated dishes that will please any palate, satisfy any appetite, and grace any dining occasion from family to formal.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Twin City Traveler on May 27, 2009
Format: Paperback
I just got my copy of the Southern Farmers Market Cookbook and can't wait to put the recipes to use. Although I live in the Midwest, the recipes are still perfect for me. The book has a smart layout -- the author suggests a basic pantry at the beginning, offers inviting and accessible recipes at the core, then rounds it out with a listing of area Farmers Markets and the various produce in season. It's a book that's inspiring as much as it is informational. I'm going to walk through my weekend Farmers Market with the senses as my guide to finding "what's for dinner."

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Richard Berg on June 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
There are lots of cookbooks, many of them quite good. But this beauty should be front and center on your shelf. The recipes are enough to start you salivating, something enhanced by the wonderful photos of all the goodies you get to cook. The recipes are simple and direct, the meals are off-the-usual track, and the ingredients - and where/how to get them - are a key to your success. A major yummster . . . and enjoyably readable.
