This is one of my favorite cookbooks developed in the kitchen of one of the world's best restaurants by a great pioneer of the slow food movement. The arts and crafts inspired prints are beautiful and the recipes are fantastic. Years after buying this book, I still go back to it again and again. Trips to market almost always begin with a quick look through it's pages for ideas on how to use the freshest, locally grown, seasonal produce in recipes that range from quick-cook to project.

This book is a tremendous resource! Before I go to the weekend farmer's market, I can flip to the season I'm in and bone up on what I'm about to encounter AND how to pick the best one. The recipes also range from daily/casual to impress-your-friends with Alice Waters fancy dishes.

Love the cookbook, it is full of simple yet yummy recipes. As a bonus Ms. Waters has in her alphebetical vegetables, when certain veggies are in season. It is well known the fresher the better.

A cookbook containing world-famous recipes offers information on how to grow specific vegetables, when they are in season, how to select the best produce at the market, how to keep it fresh, and how to cook it to its best advantage.
