I also really like how this book clearly charts what vegetables can be found in which season. Then, sorts recipes by the vegetable. I like when cookbooks have a picture with each recipe, and this book does not. There are 3 recipes per page with a picture of one recipe. But, that is a good indicator that most of these recipes are simple and fairly easy to prepare.
I appreciated the variety of vegetables covered and the general appeal of the recipes; there were few I'd have to worry about guests or family not being comfortable with. Definitely a keeper destined to be much appreciated this summer!
The first chapters are on the author's reasoning for shopping locally, buying organic and seasonal foods, and what to expect at the Farmer's Market. This is good reading before heading out to your first trip to a local market, but it is also worthwhile even if you are experienced. These sections might also be a good reading choice for vegetarians, but a lot of the recipes do include meat and dairy products.
The actual recipe section is focused mainly on Vegetables and Fruits, and includes helpful buying and preparation tips. The recipes tend to be on the simple side, with three or four to a page, and are presented in an almost minimalistic fashion. The pictures are generally good quality but are not really geared to help in the recipe preparation, which is my only real issue with this cookbook.
This is a very worthwhile cookbook for those with access to Farmer's Markets and grower's cooperatives.
