Preparing and enjoying meals made with fresh seasonal produce from your local grower adds a little magic to your meal times. It’s time
to treat two of the more important activities of your life, cooking and eating, more seriously.
This cookbook is all about using fresh ingredients with a pinch of flair. Most of the
recipes can be prepared with tools that most of us have in our kitchens and with
ingredients easily found at any local farmer’s market or our own backyards. The point of this cookbook is to make eating healthy, fresh food simple so that you will choose it over frozen or processed products.
Inside you’ll learn:
• The characteristics of each food
• Multiple techniques for preparing produce
• Ways to preserve and extend freshness
• Why farm-fresh food is a better choice for healthy eating
