Publisher Comments:

Two of the biggest draws of the farmers' market are the chance to buy local products and the opportunity to meet the producer--to skip the middleman and shake the hand of the farmer, the forager, the artisan. For so many of us living in the city, shopping at the supermarket, unwrapping plastic-covered sandwiches for lunch, or grabbing quick takeout, the vendors are heroic. They are passionate about their products and have chosen to do what they do on a small scale for any number of reasons, including better quality, tradition, respect for the earth, or to continue a family business. Writer Leora Bloom profiles 17 such Washington food artisans, including producers of fruit, wine, cheese, tomatoes, lavender, and honey, as well as meat, fish, and grains. She also provides recipes for each farmer's products, procured from Washington's most renowned chefs and restaurants.

Review:

"In an effort to highlight local producers and chefs, Seattle resident Bloom gathered stories and over 50 recipes from a diverse cast of dedicated farmers and foodies in this eye-catching volume. Stina Booth and her husband, John Richardson, who run Booth Canyon Orchard, 'take turns driving their truck across the Cascades to bring their apples and pears to Seattle so that someone is always at home taking care of the trees.' Loki Fish Co.'s Pete Knutson (who resembles 'a Norwegian fisherman... movie-star handsome, aging with craggy wrinkles in all the right places') is similarly attached to his trade — when he's not fishing, he advocates for 'sustainable fisheries' and salmon habitat preservation. In addition to these charming profiles, recipes ranging from spiced albacore tuna with stone fruit chutney to goat cheesecake with pears and honey will have denizens of the Northwest and beyond drooling — most ingredients can be sourced nationwide. Supplemented with Clare Barboza's sumptuous photographs of landscapes and prepared dishes, this volume will inspire even those unable to travel to this far corner of the country to try their hand at Washingtonian fare, as well as explore their own local treasures.
