By Wendy Hammond VINE VOICE on August 5, 2010
Format: Hardcover
I think I've been reviewing seasonal cookbooks too long, because the first thing I noticed about this book is that it is NOT organized by season. It's organized in the traditional manner (starters, snacks, and drinks; breakfast, brunch & egg dishes; sauces, salsas, and vinaigrettes; etc.) with a few pages of seasonal menus thrown in at the end. The index is pretty good, though, so you'll still be able to find the recipes you want easily.

There are no photos of the recipes, but they do highlight what you'll need "from the garden," (or farmer's market, whichever the case may be). There are also a lot of them - more than 200! And they are fairly basic, with lots of familiar flavors and preparations.

If you don't have many vegetable/seasonal cookbooks, this is a good one to get. If you do have a couple, though, there's nothing new or different here.

This is definitely a make-it-from-scratch cookbook that includes recipes for homemade ketchup, Thyme Mayonnaise, dressings and sauces. The recipes have easy to follow instructions and a short list of a few basic ingredients. There are no photographs of finished dishes, but there are tips and menu ideas. Most of the recipes contain ingredients that can be grown most anywhere or can be found at a local farmers market. These are good, wholesome family recipes.

Cooking from the Garden celebrates seasonal variety, presenting over 200 tasty recipes from chefs, restaurateurs and cooks around the country. Full-page sidebars of detail include tips on how to peel a tomato, choosing the right mint for the kitchen, and more. No color photos but dishes such as Lentils with Mint, Cider & Ginger or Linguine with Mixed Sweet Peppers, Feta & Oregano don't need 'em.

As a CSA shareholder I'm always looking for new ways to use the glorious fresh veggies I receive each week. This book has simple, tasty and healthy recipes. I particularly like the nutrition values given for each recipe because I'm very careful about watching sodium and fat. The Broccoli Raab w/Spaghettini, the Kohlrabi and Fennel Salad and the Sweet and Savory Cherry Sauce are recipes I've tried and LOVED. This book has already become one of my top go to choices for everyday cooking.
