From the Back Cover
Celebrate the season's bounty with these luscious summer recipes!
Summer is the most delicious season, when markets burst with the sweetest fruits, the juiciest vegetables, and the freshest, most aromatic herbs. It's also the season when we gather in parks and backyards for picnics and barbecues, armed with ready supplies of meat for the grill, summery salads and sides, refreshing ice-cold drinks, and delicious desserts.
In The Big Summer Cookbook, Jeff Cox shares 300 simple, versatile recipes that range from classic American summertime staples to creative takes on the season's best produce. Whether you're hosting a big outdoor party or an intimate dinner on the porch, serving brunch to summer house guests or packing lunch for the beach or lake, you'll find plenty of great ideas for turning every summer meal into a feast for the soul and the senses.

Top Customer Reviews
That said, there was a pretty wide variety of recipes. Not all of them appealed, but things like tzatzaki, vichyssoise and stuffed squash blossoms don't show up in your average summer cookbook so it may be worth picking up just for something different. It also had more international fare than most warm-weather cookbooks.
