The Farm to Table Cookbook: The Art of Eating Locally

Ivy Manning, Author, Gregor Torrence, Photographer Sasquatch Books $29.95 (239p) ISBN 978-1-57061-529-0
Those who frequent farmer's markets or belong to food co-ops will certainly appreciate this handy guide to what's in season, and how best to utilize it, from Portland, Ore. food writer Manning. Season by season, Manning highlights a handful of ingredients at their peak of ripeness; Spring, for example, yields Swiss Chard and Feta Phyllo Pockets with Yogurt Dill Dip, and Asparagus and Caramelized Leek Bread Pudding, while summer brings Chicken Chilaquiles and Flank Steak Fajitas with Interesting Peppers. Vegetarians will find a few new favorites, such as the Sweet Corn Chowder with Tomato and Basil, Grilled Vegetable Galette, and Roasted Butternut Soup in Dumpling Squash Bowls, offered up as hearty autumnal fare. With the exception of a few regional specialties like halibut cheeks and morel mushrooms, cooks around the country should be able to source and replicate the recipes with a minimum of fuss. Though many of her recipes will look familiar, Manning's book makes a handy resource for those puzzling over their latest haul from the local greenmarket.
