This book is many things: a collection of essays, a cookbook, and a record of an extraordinary year at Dogwood Road Farm (http://www.dogwoodroadfarm.com).
In the introduction, the author writes, "In July, 2010... I began writing a weekly food column for a small newspaper called the Oglethorpe Echo. The newspaper is based in the town of Lexington, about 15 minutes east of Athens, Georgia. Given an astonishing amount of free rein by editor Ralph Maxwell, I decided that the focus of my column would be locally grown, seasonal food. I would talk about the vegetables and fruits my husband and I grow and sell, the ways we like to cook and eat them, the influence of the weather, the food traditions of our area, the natural history of the plants, and whatever other topics sprang to mind. And so I began to write."
A Year of Georgia Food is funny, brainy, and informative. It includes 52 recipes, plus two vegetable planting guides designed for the South.
