Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


No matter how small your pot or patch of grass, gardeners can discover anew the hidden potential of the fruits of their labor. This cookbook offers over 120 lush recipes, making the best use of all types of fresh-from-the-earth produce: including common crops like tomatoes and herbs, and more exotic foods like celery root and elderberry blossoms. Whether you are a seasoned gardener or just a frequent visitor to the farmers market, youll appreciate the fresh approach to eating well. Woodin brings to life the warmth of late-summer fruits and the soil dusting each yam and carrot with her award-winning whimsical illustrations and watercolors. The book is organized seasonally, with small first-course dishes and snacks, vegetable sides, main courses, desserts, and various sundries like breads, compotes, and preserves.
