“Red Jacket’s fruit, popular with New York City chefs, comes to your table with inventive dishes incorporating the ripest ingredients.”
"There’s a new way to follow the biblical exhortation to be “fruitful and multiply” without adding to the population explosion. Go through Brian Nicholson and Sarah Huck’s beautifully illustrated Fruitful: Four Seasons of Fresh Fruit Recipes, select from the 140 recipes and, as you add them to your repertoire, the number of delectable, peak-picked fruit dishes will multiply as will the compliments you get. Nicholson grew up on his family’s fruit farm in upstate New York tending and cultivating flavor, and he has imbued this cookbook with that same loving care. In seasonal sections, each fruit gets its full due, with practical growing tips, advice for preserving and sensational seasonal recipes."
“This is a great addition to any kitchen bookshelf.”
“Fresh fruit is a year-round celebration with this gorgeous new cookbook.” The Oregonian
“Fruitful is truly a unique book; one look and you'll know this is not your ordinary cookbook.
This book is full of wonderful recipes and beautiful pictures for you to enjoy!”
