I disagree completely with the first reviewer. Sure, the book isn't cheap--it's a hardcover, so that's to be expected. However, the information inside is fabulous for someone like me who is trying earnestly to shop for food from local farmer's markets. With this book, I am able to hit the Sunday market and then look up the items I bought in order to make delicious and simple recipes that showcase locally in-season foods. Perfect! Truly, Local Flavors has changed the way I shop and cook--it's made me more excited to shop during the 'lean' winter months. Used to be that I would dread the end of the bountiful summer markets--peaches! nectarines! heirloom tomatoes!--and the coming of the more spartan fall offerings--rhubarb. winter squash. root vegetables.--and headed off to Whole Foods for a taste of summer shipped in from the Southern Hemisphere. Now, I get that the cold-weather vegetables come into season together and taste great together and cater to that warm, nesting desire we all get as the colder months approach. The recipes I've tried are delicious and easy to modify with the ingredients you find at your local market. In closing, in case it isn't already obvious: I highly recommend this book. (If you're not sure, check it out from the library before you buy like I did.)

This is one of my all-time favorite cookbooks. As a fan of a local farmer's market in Indiana, I enjoy sampling the offerings of many different markets around the country through Deborah Madison's clear prose, tasty recipes, and lush photographs. Every time I open this book it reminds me of why the local food movement is so important: it encourages us to connect food with its source, to celebrate the produce of each season, and to make both our lives and our tables more beautiful and tasteful by honoring the local sources of real foods. The emphasis on seasonal produce and simple preparations also keeps fuss at a minimum and enhances the pleasures of the table.

THIS LOVELY COOKBOOK IS VISUALLY STUNNING WITH LOVELY PICTURES OF FOOD AND FARMERS MARKETS. THE RECIPES ARE ONES THAT MADISON HAS COLLECTED FROM VENDORS AT FARMERS MARKETS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THEY FEATURE VEGGIES, FRUIT, NUTS, EGGS AND CHEESES SOLD AT THESE MARKETS. I PARTICULARLY ENJOYED THE GIANT POPOVER WITH CHANTRELLES. I THINK THIS WILL MAKE A GREAT GIFT FOR MY FAMILY WHO ARE TRYING TO BUY LOCALLY AND LIVE A MORE VEGETARIAN LIFESTYLE.

This book is extemely disappointing. The price is too much and the book is just a glossy show case of photographs. After flipping through 300+ pages, I only found 4 recipes I would make. Granted they are 4 great recipes but the book doesn't have a lot of substance. This book offers way way too many fruit and dessert recipes and does not include many hearty vegetarian entrees or side dishes. Big disappointment.
