I pre-ordered this cookbook, having heard of its publication from friends in Northern California. Upon receiving it, there was NO disappointment! The recipes cover so many possibilities. appealing to different tastes and seasonal culinary desires. Simply reading from page to page, which I love to do, takes me back to Bay Area bistros and cafes, and reminds me to make a list before my next Califoria vacation. Visuals in cookbooks always add to their appeal, and the photographs you'll find here will blow you away. Kudos to Aaron and Elizabeth. I plan on ordering several for family and friend holiday gifts!

Format: Hardcover
Locavore is more than just a trendy word. In this book, it becomes a mission, a gorgeous book worthy of a coffee table, and an inspiration you can use in your kitchen. With this amazing combination, I'm happy to highly recommend this book.

With the holiday season firmly upon us, consider this book as a gift to for the foodie in your life. People who love food--yes, I'm one of them--enjoy the entire process: shopping, fixing, researching, and even reading about their hobby. Likewise, the book will be enjoyed by those who are ready for their first literary journey with food, farms, and chefs.

The food-stories are beautifully illustrated with photos and recipes. You'll meet all the aspects that come together to make fabulous dishes and demonstrate the real difference that happens when you shop, cook and eat local. Some of the combinations are surprisingly simple, a quality that is well-served by very fresh, seasonal choices. You may also be exposed to some additional techniques or considerations that serve well over the long-term. With selections ranging from soups or salads to desserts, each reader is sure to find a number of choices to test in their own kitchen.

Beautiful photography can make your mouth water. Stories of growers and cooks fascinating. Not practical for a person in the midwest where ingredients available are different, but worth having just to know there are such earth-friendly people out there. Laura Bickers, Decatur, IL
