Top Customer Reviews
I've been a longtime reader of Andrea's blog, and her recipes have been a gateway to introducing a larger variety of veggies into my diet. When she announced her book, I was excited to pre-order it - both to support a hard-working farmer and have a more veggie-centric cookbook. Dividing the recipes into seasons was a good idea, and makes it easy to navigate based on what's available. She includes several, very versatile sauces and new (to me) ways to prepare vegetables that are useful for someone like me who wants more interesting things to do with them besides roasting or sauteeing. It's especially helpful for someone who struggles with side dishes and gets stuck in a roasted-broccoli rut (also me). The story woven into the book about her farm life with Taylor makes me thankful that people like her exist and do enjoy working the land to make our food. Overall, it's a great cookbook for using seasonal ingredients in simple ways and learning more about the life of your local farmer.
