Cooking from the Farmer’s Market is hot off the press. I thought it was a June 1 release but was thrilled and surprised to answer the door to my friendly USPS delivery person handing me a box full of the books. From what I hear, they are at your local Williams Sonoma now.
The book was a collaboration between myself (writing the fruit half of the book), Tasha DeSerio (writing the veggie half of the book), Jennifer Maiser (writing the forward), and Maren Caruso (taking the stunning photographs).
This is the perfect book for anyone who shops like I do at the local farmer’s market. If you bring home your basket full of whatever looks good that day, you can reference the produce in the book and find lots of great ways to prepare it. With tips on picking out what’s fresh and recipes like Pork Medallions with Roasted Figs, Strawberry Creme Fraiche Ice Cream, Pan Seared Scallops with Caramelized Oranges, you’ll use this book all the time.
Check it out, let me know what you think. Note that WS has an older book, from 1999, with the same title so be sure you look for the new one, sub-head is “Shop, Cook, & Eat”.
Happy Reading and Happy Cooking!
