Simply In Season (World Community Cookbook)
I purchased this book after seeing it at a sustainable agriculture conference. It has some great recipes for eating foods that are in season.
Simply a great cookbook/resource Jan 1, 2008
I really have liked the recipes I have tried so far. Also a great book just to flip through and enjoy. I enjoy the way the book is divided up into different seasons and color coded for easy reference!
Great book for 'mindful' eating Dec 25, 2007
This is a great book for introducing the concept of eating foods that are in season. This practice supports local farmers, saves on fuel, and helps us to stay in touch with the earth. The recipes are a great bonus.
My # 1 Cookbook! Nov 19, 2007
This is an excellent cookbook for anyone who cares about good food, health, the environment, and who wants to eat more locally-grown foods. It is arranged by season, with the main seasonal ingredients listed down the side of the page, and is VERY useable! If you find yourself with an abundance of tomatoes, say, you can easily find (in the summer section) all of the recipes that use tomato asa main ingredient. All the recipes I've tried have been very tasty, and not labor intensive. I also enjoy the little blurbs on different pages about sustainability and good stewardship of the earth.
