Author Pennington (Urban Pantry: Tips and Recipes for a Thrifty, Sustainable and Seasonal Kitchen) showcases the apple's versatility in this new collection of sweet and savory recipes. Multiple varieties (e.g., Rome, Golden Delicious, Winesap), raw and cooked, lend sweetness and acidity to potato pancakes with applesauce, vanilla caramel-poached apple halves with mascarpone, and beet and apple relish. In five chapters covering most courses, Pennington offers 50 recipes, technical tips, and projects for kids. VERDICT This beautiful collection has more in common with Frank Browning and Sharon Silva's An Apple Harvest: Recipes and Orchard Lore than Amy Traverso's more comprehensive The Apple Lover's Cookbook. Recommended for readers more interested in recipes than in history and botanical information.
