Overview


Cooking with Heirlooms: Seasonal Recipes with Heritage-Variety Vegetables and Fruits is a celebration of the world’s “original” produce, the unique varieties that are not produced on commercial farms but instead are passed from generation to generation by hobby farmers and gardening and farming families. Prized for their more intense flavors and unusual colors, heirloom fruits and vegetables have become increasingly popular at farm stands, farmers’ markets, and even grocery stores as more consumers seek to “eat local” and avoid pesticides and other chemicals. Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs, Cooking with Heirlooms presents more than 150 recipes that harken back to simpler times, using the freshest ingredients along with the many varieties of heirlooms widely available today. Author Karen Keb Acevedo, the founding editor of Hobby Farms magazine, is an active hobby farmer and an adventurous, accomplished home cook. Foodies and farmers alike will find a delectable array of recipes organized by the four seasons, providing inspiration and great cooking ideas all year long. For each season, the author along with compiler and recipe tester Carol Boker provide appetizers and soups, breads and breakfast, entrées, salads and sides, and desserts. The resources section includes companies and websites that sell seeds and heritage meat supplies plus related books and periodicals. Fully indexed.
