About This Collection
When the meal calls for a special touch-- or the season sings out for particular attention-- try these festive dishes!
Each recipe offers a brightness or an extra idea that lifts it above the usual. Not because the mixtures are exotic. Not because the procedures are delicate and complex. But because the fresh ingredients are given unusual preeminence. The earth's bounty is celebrated in every combination.
Where do these recipes come from? I edit a magazine-- Festival Quarterly-- which explores the many intersections of life and the arts. We cover music; poetry, and short stories; creatively caring for our families, our communities, the land, and the air; the visual arts; humor, oral communication-- and cooking.
Believing that many of Festival Quarterly's readers are avid-- and imaginary-- cooks, I invited them to submit recipes that brought them fond memories; foods that were a part of special family and community times. They drew upon their traditions, both childhood and present-day. And in so doing, they gave tribute to the efforts of good cooks, no matter their era; to the land's fullness; and to those sacred moments when we gather together around a table to enjoy each other and the well prepared food that lies before us.
May you find much warmth and satisfaction in this collection of favorites!
