Editorial Reviews

Review

“In addition to celebrating local heroes, seasonal food, and having recipes you’ll want to try year round, this is a beautiful book. You may want to keep it on your coffee table so you can open it often, each season, and try new recipes.” - Bostonzest.com



"The recipes are great…and the photos and production quality of the book are outstanding.” - BOSTON Magazine

From the Inside Flap

Restaurants all over the Boston area try to boast at least one of these adjectives, but to the farmers and chefs profiled here, these are more than just buzzwords. They are a way of life. These farmers rise before the roosters to bring fresh produce, meats, and cheeses to area farmers’ markets. These chefs kick off the day with an early trip to the market and wrap it up in the wee hours of the night after feeding hundreds of appreciative diners.
 
In The Boston Homegrown Cookbook, you’ll find the stories behind some of Boston’s most buzz-worthy chefs, including Jason Bond of Bondir, Jody Adams of Rialto, Barry Maiden of Hungry Mother, Steve Johnson of Rendezvous, and Jamie Bissonnette of Coppa. The chefs featured here work with area farmers to bring the freshest locally grown, sustainable foods to their menus. With more than 50 outstanding recipes from these dedicated chefs and farmers, we hope you’ll enjoy bringing a little homegrown food into your own kitchen.

By A. Heintz on June 12, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This is a fabulous book, filled with delectable recipes from Boston's best chefs and restaurants. Arranged by season, presumably to allow you to use fresh and local ingredients in your own kitchen, there are fascinating pairings or chef and farm bios along with recipes like BBQ pork ribs, rissotto verde, rhubarb upside down cake, vermont quail, matsutake salad, the list goes on. The recipes range from simple to complex, which lets you find something to cook no matter how much or little time you have. And beyond the recipes, the chef profiles are a great read. Jason Bond of Bondir, Ben Maleson the mushroom man, and Jody Adams of Rialto are just a few of the Boston locals explaining how they got into what they love, and why local food and sustainability matter to them.

I'd recommend this wonderful book to all Bostonians and others who like a good read and fabulous food ideas!

Beautiful cookbook. Support your local farmer. The farm I volunteer at is featured in this book and I'm so proud of the change that my home (Boston area) has gone through just in recent years alone. Local food just used to mean lobsters and chowder!!!

Great recipes from some of Boston's best chefs with photos that more than do the food justice. I got this as a gift and have treasured it since.
