Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is wonderful to see how easy and delicious food can be when prepared with fresh produce purchased from organic farmers, right in the market—seasonal, local, ripe and pure. These are essential ingredients of cuisine."—Alice Waters, chef and owner of Chez Panisse Café & Restaurant "Richard Ruben has triumphed with a timely cookbook chock-full of great recipes, personal stories, and excellent information. Reading through the delicious recipes, I am most impressed with the focus on seasonality, something so near and dear to my own heart. This wonderful book just makes me want to pick up a basket and head straight to the farmer's market." —Joanne Weir, author, teacher, and host of PBS's Weir Cooking in the Wine Country

Read an Excerpt

"There is no longer a sense of seasonal foods in this world. Meats come to grocers shrink-wrapped, vegetables arrive frozen from multinational manufacturers, and fruits are flown in from far-off countries. This disenfranchises us from nature's cycle and timing. As a chef, I am totally dependent on the earth and the cornucopia it offers; I have found that cooking is always simpler and more visually vibrant when I choose foods at the peak of their season and flavor." Excerpt from The Farmer's Market Cookbook
