I admit, I loved Emeril on TV and the creativity behind his dishes. I even had a couple of his earlier cook books; but our relationship grew distant as I could not make most of his dishes practical for our day to day lifestyle. until NOW. This is a great cookbook. I bought it a few days ago, made the Spiced Zucchini bread last night (Delicious) and have nearly 75% of the dishes dog-eared to try as soon as I can. The mere fact this book focused on local, fresh ingredients drew me in. I am a big fan of Farmer's Markets and keeping my purchases local or even out of my own (small) garden. This gives me the opportunity to make wonderful dishes using ingredients at their peak of freshness and stay a little greener. I highly recommend this book. I am very pleased I read about this book and decided to pick it up.

I normally don't read or even own too many cookbooks. Maybe if I did, I'd be a better cook. LOL However, when I had the opportunity to review this new cookbook I couldn't resist. I not only like the concept of the cookbook, but I enjoy watching the author/chef as he prepares his dishes. As we beginning enjoying the lazy days of summer, thoughts turn to family get-togethers, barbecues, and picnics with lots of wonderful food. Also with summer comes more fresh vegetables either from one's own garden or the local market. Renowned Chef Emeril Lagasse has a new cookbook that is devoted to using fresh, locally grown (and organic when possible) ingredients when preparing any type of dish. FARM TO FORK: COOKING LOCAL, COOKING FRESH is a beautifully illustrated cookbook that not only includes the ingredients and directions to preparing a dish, but also give a little information about the dish. In the introduction, author/chef Lagasse explains how he came to enjoy picking fresh vegetables as a child and then as an adult using fresh ingredients in his dishes. He also notes that he and several other chefs, along with a farmer, even started a farm co-op just so they could have fresh, locally grown ingredients. In addition, he explains the many benefits of using organically grown local vegetables. An interesting point that he makes is when you get children involved in the growing process of vegetables, they are more likely to eat them when they're prepared. As we all strive to be more "green" for our environment, this cookbook provides delicious recipes for every season. The cookbook is divided into 15 sections. They covers such topics as: the herb garden; leafy greens; the three sisters: corn, beans, and squash; fresh from the docks; out on the range; and home economics: preserving the harvest to name just a few. If you enjoy good food and fresh vegetables, FARM TO FORK is the perfect cookbook giving you a better understand of how the food chain works.

Emiril is by far the best TV chef and someone I watched since he started out in my college years. Emiril's Farm to Fork recipes are fresh as the summer breeze. This book makes me want to purchase the remaining in his series.
