Fruitful: Four Seasons of Fresh Fruit Recipesby Brian Nicholson
Synopses & Reviews
Fruitful is a trip to the local orchard, overflowing with ripe, seasonal produce—and its not just desserts! From sweet to savory, including fresh juices, every chapter is devoted to the produce of the moment: rhubarb, strawberries, apples, plums, apricots, peaches, quinces, pears, and more. This delectable cookbook showcases the bounty from New Yorks favorite orchard, illustrated with gorgeous full-color photography throughout—but all of the fruit can be found wherever you live.
Pies and cobblers are only the beginning of four seasons of recipes celebrating fruit: Strawberry-Black Pepper Granita, Spicy Roast Chicken with Rhubarb Chutney, Scallop and Blueberry Ceviche, Grilled Peach, Shrimp, and Prosciutto Skewers, and Rustic Apricot and Raspberry Crostada offer a taste of the juicy dishes inside. And twenty-five recipes will come from fruit-loving chefs who count themselves among Red Jackets devoted customers: a few of the contributors include Dan Barber, Jonathan Waxman, Karen DeMasco, and Melissa Clark.
Whether its a bushel of peaches or a bundle of rhubarb, youll find plenty to dish up here.
