Cooking Your Local Produce is for anyone who wants to explore the world of local food, but is looking for a place to start. The recipes introduce new produce with easy preparations, then follow up with a list of variations to encourage experimentation and exploration. There is even advice on what to do when you don't know exactly what you have, or your mystery produce isn't specifically mentioned. This book's goal is to turn the question: "Well, now what do I do?" into "I know I want to try next!"
