If you see the garden as an extension of your kitchen, and if you happen to appreciate a Southern sensibility. . .you'll be happy with the vegetable-focused recipes.--The Washington Post



Inspired by the bounty from our Southern soil, seasoned author Sheri Castle challenges chefs to think fresh. . . . The book is a perfect marriage of recipes and stories, blending practical tips and delightful anecdotes into a collection that's as much a narrative as it is a recipe guide.--SavorNC Magazine



A recommended cookbook of 2011--The Washington Post



A jewel.--Moreton Neal, MetroMag



If it has to do with vegetables, this cookbook is a great resource. . . . I have a feeling I'm going to be going back to this cookbook again and again.--S. Krishna's Books

A go-to guide for how to cook those fruits and vegetables--from Jerusalem artichokes to persimmons--that intrigue you at the farmers market but leave you stumped in the kitchen. . . .

A "New Southern Cookbook We Love" Editor's Pick and Southern Living Test Kitchen Approved!--Southern Living

Review

Sheri Castle takes a spectacular approach to southern cooking! Here, vegetables become the focus, rather than the garnish--returning us to a healthier and more sustainable way to eat and live. These beautiful recipes taste like the South and are enriched by Sheri's belief that, for southern food to be fully appreciated, its story must be told.--Sam Beall, proprietor of Blackberry Farm, Walland, Tennessee

|Barbecue garners more ink. Fried chicken tops more deathbed requests. But we southerners have long defined our great workaday cooks by their expertise with vegetables. In the hands of Sheri Castle, garden goods get their due, through recipes for Blasted Asparagus, Shell Bean Gratin, and Creamed Collard and Country Ham Pot Pie.--John T. Edge, series editor of Cornbread Nation: The Best of Southern Food Writing

|Sheri Castle's The New Southern Garden Cookbook is a superb addition to the canon of invaluable southern cookbooks. By focusing on what grows in the South, Castle has written an asparagus-to-zucchini compendium of delectable recipes with deep southern soul. But this volume is so much more than a stellar kitchen reference; interwoven throughout is Castle's own narrative--of a North Carolina gal who found her way home through cooking and gardening--told in an engaging, encouraging voice that home cooks will enjoy having close to the stove.--Matt Lee and Ted Lee, authors of The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern

First, the recipes are wonderful and quite doable. The author uses fresh, seasonal ingredients in lots of different ways--always with great results. This is my first year participating in a CSA, and this book has helped me learn what to do with produce I was previously unfamiliar with. The real beauty of this book, however, lies in the anecdotes and descriptions included with virtually every recipe. This is a cookbook that reads more like a humorous Southern novel!

This is a great cookbook! The recipes are wonderful, and have a "what else works" section at the end in case that particular vegetable is not available at your farmer's market when you go shopping. The recipes are organized alphabetically by the fruit or vegetable, so you can work with what's in season. It's a perfect book for anyone who wants to go local and incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their meals. The stories are personal and funny and make the book that much better. I have given this book as a gift to many friends and would highly recommend it. You won't be sorry you bought it.

This book is a wealth of information and inspiration, the recipes both creative and straightforward. An example from the chapter on blackberries -- blackberry BBQ sauce, blackberry and buttermilk sherbet, blackberry and oatmeal breakfast brûlée ... Yes, please! The writing is terrific, too -- e.g., on the unsuitability of an ingredient: "...skim milk is puny, meager and inadequate." Very helpfully organized by ingredient, although right now I am reading cover to cover . One last note: Despite the title, almost all ingredients should be easily accessible almost anywhere in the U.S.

To all professional chefs or home cooks, this is a dandy. Alphabetized and great quips for interesting reading. Have already "kitchen stained" mine.
I have sent it as gifts to veritable "foodies" and much appreciated.

I have been eating locally for two years and as a result, I have amassed several very good local-food cookbooks, including this one among Local Flavors, Southern Farmers Market Cookbook, and The Old Farmer's Garden-Fresh Cookbook Almanac. I keep returning to The New Southern Garden Cookbook because it's exceptionally easy to use; recipes are arranged by specific ingredient, unlike the other cookbooks in my collection. One must merely assess what produce she has and then flip to the ingredient sections to find appropriate recipes.

Though this cookbook is rather sparse in photos and art compared to similar cookbooks (e.g. Local Flavors, especially), author Sheri Castle more than makes up for this deficiency with witty, humor-infused prose, as well as fascinating histories of the ingredients, which precede each section. The field peas introduction, for example, is quite compelling, outlining the history of field peas from Africa with colorful names like calico crowder, Sea Island Red, purple-hull, zipper, etc. Long story short: if you love local food, this cookbook belongs on your shelf, even if you don't live in the South.

"Mouthwatering" seems pale to explain what happens when I read through these recipes! New ideas and also updated twists on classics. Though I live in the Midwest, our farmer's markets (and supermarkets!) provide much of the produce that Castle creates with. I know this will become a well-spattered, dog-eared, loved and used book in my culinary library. Now to the kitchen!

My husband grew up with southern comfort cooking so I had no clue how to make him something he liked, but Sheri's book made cooking cobbler and vegetables easy. I have vowed to do a recipe a week.

I really like how this cookbook breaks out the recipes by each product you would find at a Farmer's Market. Well organized and creative, delicious recipes. I have given two as gifts!
