Overview

With the rising interest in organic and locally grown food, there is also an increasing interest in connecting the farm to the table. Chefs on the Farm describes the seasonal workings of Quillisascut Goat Cheese Farm, a small, family-run business in northeastern Washington state. There, owners Lora Lea and Rick Misterly started a "Farm School for the Domestic Arts" where every summer, professional chefs, culinary students, food writers, and others live and work on the farm. Cooking only with ingredients they find on the farm, students learn to be connected to the food they work with.

    A Gem of a book illustrating in lovely detail the path from field to table.

    I love the connections of the seasons to earth and from field to table in this book. The recipe's by Karen Jurgensen and the photography throughout the book make this a fabulous read but more importantly a great recipe book to have in the kitchen. Whether you are yearning to be on the farm or wanting to have a deeper understanding of the labors that go into real food before it arrives in your kitchen, this is one of those recipe books that you'll want to share with friends. The forward by Tom Douglas is a testimony to the farmer that resides in each of us.
