Overview

In The New Southern Garden Cookbook, Sheri Castle aims to make "what's in season" the answer to "what's for dinner?" This timely cookbook, with dishes for omnivores and vegetarians alike, celebrates and promotes delicious, healthful homemade meals centered on the diverse array of seasonal fruits and vegetables grown in the South, and in most of the rest of the nation as well.

Increased attention to the health benefits and environmental advantages of eating locally, Castle notes, is inspiring Americans to partake of the garden by raising their own kitchen plots, visiting area farmers' markets and pick-your-own farms, and signing up for CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) boxes from local growers.

The New Southern Garden Cookbook offers over 300 brightly flavored recipes that will inspire beginning and experienced cooks, southern or otherwise, to take advantage of seasonal delights. Castle has organized the cookbook alphabetically by type of vegetable or fruit, building on the premise that when cooking with fresh produce, the ingredient, not the recipe, is the wiser starting point. While some dishes are inspired by traditional southern recipes, many reveal the goodness of gardens in new, contemporary ways. Peppered with tips, hints, and great stories, these pages make for good food and a good read.

A go-to guide for how to cook those fruits and vegetables--from Jerusalem artichokes to persimmons--that intrigue you at the farmers market but leave you stumped in the kitchen. . . . Regardless of whether your 'garden' is a pot of herbs growing on a back porch, a half-acre garden plot or a farmers market, Castle's book can help you cook whatever you buy, grow or pick yourself.--Raleigh News & Observer

If you see the garden as an extension of your kitchen, and if you happen to appreciate a Southern sensibility. . .you'll be happy with the vegetable-focused recipes.--The Washington Post

A recommended cookbook of 2011--The Washington Post

This cookbook (organized by types of vegetables and fruits) helps foodies, whether they live in the South or not, build meals on seasonal, homegrown vegetables. . . . Now get yourself back to the garden.--The Houston Chronicle

Features produce that flourish in the South (think cucumbers and onions or savory smoked ham) but are nevertheless suitable for seasonal cooking across the country.--ForeWord Reviews

You can find other great Southern recipes from Sheri's book. I'll certainly vouch for them!--Nola.com "Everything New Orleans" blog

    A Must Have

    Cooking is one of my life's joys. I own and read a lot of cookbooks. This book transcends cultural, geographic, and generational boundaries. You don't have to be from the South or an accomplished cook to thoroughly enjoy what's inside. The recipe entries are accompanied by narratives which impart not only a sense of place and history about the dish, but typically a great deal of culinary wisdom as well. The author is clearly not only very well versed in food but passionate about it and able to communicate about it. This book thus is a joy to read, not just for the recipes, but for the story of our food. It solves the problem of " there's great looking squash at the market, but I'm not sure what to do with it". Recommended without reservation.
